Frontier Grant FAQ
You should first review our Ideals and Values page in order to see whether your proposal matches up with the Foundations’s mission and goals. If you feel your project is a good match, the next step is to contact us via email with a Letter of Inquiry. Letters of Inquiry are accepted on a rolling basis. Based upon the information in your inquiry, we may invite you to submit a full proposal Application regarding your organization’s project and goals.
We will send an acknowledgement email once the inquiry has been received. We will respond with a determination on whether you are invited to submit a full proposal Application within 30 days.
We will notify you of our decision within 60 days of your received application.
No, we can only grant to organizations that have IRS 501 (c) (3) status, or have an affiliation with a Fiscal Sponsor.
A Fiscal Sponsor is an organization that qualifies as an IRS public charity 501 (c) (3) and can accept funds on your behalf. The funds are then re-distributed to your project, thus ensuring a tax-efficient transaction for the Frontier Fund. You may submit your proposal without 501(c) (3) status and without a Fiscal Sponsor. However you will need one should your application be accepted.
Yes, we accept International organizations. However, if you are based internationally and do not have IRS 501(c) (3) status, you will need to work with a Fiscal Sponsor who does.
