How to apply
The Pupkewitz Foundation awards grants in the following areas: Education, Health, Community Care, Environment, Arts & Culture, and Sport. Occasionally, program teams will do an open call for proposals within a focus area. For initiatives, we often use a request for proposals process to fund specific efforts in a cohort model.
Before considering applying to Pupkewitz Foundation, we recommend first visiting the relevant pages in the Our Work section to explore our current strategies.
If you believe your charitable organization has a request that fits within our guidelines, we suggest that you write us a preliminary letter of no more than two pages. The letter should tell us about your organization, the project you have in mind and the amount of support you will need from us. We respond in writing to all preliminary inquiries. In cases that warrant further consideration, we may ask you to furnish a full proposal. Email or faxed requests will not be considered.
We wish to appreciate the distinctive nature of your charity so we don’t use rigid forms, but we do ask that you read our guidelines carefully to ensure you have included all the information our Trustees need to make an informed decision – this will speed up the decision process for you. You may submit your application online through our website and receive an immediate acknowledgement email, giving you the comfort that we have safely received it. Applying online also enables you to save your proposal and share it with colleagues.
