The Philip L. Graham Fund follows a two-step application process. Organizations interested in applying for funding must submit a Letter of Inquiry through an online application system prior to one of three deadlines each year. The Fund does not accept paper applications. Within 30 days of each Letter of Inquiry deadline, all applicants will be notified of their application’s status and select applicants will receive an invitation to submit a full proposal.

A link to the online application system will be available here beginning two months prior to each Letter of Inquiry deadline.
