How to Apply

Thanks for your interest in the James R. Thorpe Foundation. In 2024, the Foundation will consider two-year grants for organizations youth seniors, while organizations serving seniors will be considered in 2025.  Existing grantees will receive an invitation to apply via Foundant.

Organizations that have not received funding from the Foundation in the past, and wanted to be considered for funding and fit the Foundation’s Giving Priorities, were encouraged to fill out a short interest form by June 15, 2024.  The Foundation will review the forms and select up to three organizations that will be invited to give a short presentation to the Foundation’s board.  Organizations selected to share a presentation will receive a $1,000 stipend for their time and, following the presentation, may be invited to submit a full application.
