How long do foundations take to make funding decisions?
The length of time from the submission of a full proposal to award varies by foundation. There are foundations that require a letter of inquiry to be submitted prior to an invitation for a full proposal.
Most foundation decisions are made by a board that meets periodically; board meeting schedules vary considerably: bimonthly, quarterly, semiannually, and annually. Foundations therefore often need to receive materials well in advance of a board meeting, sometimes several months prior.
If the award letter from a foundation says I need to send in a report, what should I do?
What should I do if my grant is ending but I have funds that I have not used?
My proposal was not funded. Can I contact the foundation for feedback?
