Application Process


Greater Texas Foundation’s grant process begins with a letter of inquiry (LOI) to determine whether the foundation’s present interests, guidelines, mission and funds permit consideration of the request.  Unless otherwise indicated, no grant proposals/applications are accepted unless the request begins with a successful LOI.  Letters of inquiry are accepted throughout the year.  More information related to initiating a letter of inquiry can be found below.  After submission of a successful LOI, organizations will receive more information about the grant proposal/application process, which is based on an outcomes funding model.

Letter of Inquiry

Organizations interested in funding from Greater Texas Foundation must first submit a letter of inquiry through the foundation’s online application process.  The online application will prompt you for information related to your organization and your project.  Examples of past work (articles, reports, videos, or other materials) should not be submitted with an LOI.

Method of Delivery for Letters of Inquiry

Letters of inquiry must be submitted through the foundation’s online process.  The process begins with an eligibility quiz that will determine if you meet the foundation’s requirements for submitting an LOI.  The quiz consists of several questions that guide our grantmaking process.  Should you meet our requirements you will be connected to our online application.
