The Philip L. Graham Fund follows a two-step application process. Organizations interested in applying for funding from the Philip L. Graham Fund must first submit a letter of inquiry (LOI) through our online application system prior to one of three deadlines each year. A link to the online application system will be available in the How to Apply section of this website beginning two months prior to each LOI deadline.
The Fund’s 2016 deadlines are: April 1, August 1, and December 1. Applications from public charter schools are only accepted on the August deadline each year. Public charter schools interested in submitting an application are encouraged to contact the Fund prior to submitting an LOI. Within thirty days of each LOI deadline, all applicants will be notified of their application’s status and select applicants will receive an invitation to submit a full proposal.
