At this time, the A.J. Fletcher Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant requests, letters of inquiry, or proposals.

We invite a select group of organizations to submit applications based on regular independent research, engagement with a wide range of community groups and by monitoring ongoing and emerging strategies based on the priorities set by the Foundation’s board of directors. 

Though we know that many excellent organizations and programs are active in our state, we are able to consider only a small number for grant awards each year.
