New Applicants vs. Current Grantees

Is my organization a New Applicant or a Current Grantee?
Current Grantees are organizations that have been awarded Howard Gilman Foundation funding in the last calendar year. New Applicants are organizations that have never applied before, or that have NOT been awarded Foundation funding in the last calendar year.

If my organization received funding last year, do I need to fill out an LOI in order to reapply?
If you are a current grantee (a current grantee is defined as an organization that was awarded funding during the last calendar year), you should fill out an Intent to Apply in place of an LOI. You can find more information about the Intent to Apply on our Funding Process page.

Is my organization still a New Applicant even if it was previously invited to apply?
If your organization applied for funding but was NOT awarded funding, it is still considered a New Applicant.
