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 the several 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 status and select applicants will receive an invitation to submit a full proposal.

The Fund is currently prioritizing requests from applicants that have not received funding in the past twelve months. The Fund encourages applicants to wait at least nine months from the date of their last grant award or declination letter before submitting a new application. The Fund’s next application deadline is December 6, 2021 at 5:30 pm. A link to access the Letter of Inquiry application will be available here on November 6th.
