The Weinberg Foundation accepts Letters of Inquiry (LOI), no longer than three pages, on a rolling basis and reviews them weekly. LOIs exceeding three pages will not be considered and will be returned to the applicant. While the Foundation is pleased to provide a Hebrew section on its website, all LOIs and grant applications must be in English. Thank you for your understanding.
Please submit your LOI by mail, email, or fax. Please do not submit your LOI using multiple methods. This creates duplication during processing and evaluation. Emailed LOIs must include two electronic signatures. If you cannot provide this in a word document, you may scan the signatures and send as a PDF.
All LOIs should be sent to the following:
Capital grants fund the purchase, construction, and/or renovation of a building or the purchase of equipment. To be eligible for consideration, a capital grant must meet the following criteria:
- The organization has raised at least 50 percent of the total capital project cost.
- The organization has received value-engineered drawings or a signed contract with the builder, if applicable.
Operating grants fund the overall operating costs of an organization.
Program grants fund specific programs within an organization.
Within 30 days*
The Foundation will confirm receipt of each completed LOI by email (if you provide an email address) and by postcard.
Within 60 days*
Grant applicant will receive notification either that the LOI was declined or that the applicant is invited to submit a full grant proposal.
Within 180 days*
Organizations that receive grant approvals from the Weinberg Foundation will receive a letter of congratulations which also begins the contract phase of the process. If the grant award is an operating or program grant without any challenge component, a check will be issued for the first payment approximately one month after the signed contract is received. The grantee returns a receipt of payment to the Foundation.
After 1 year
The grantee will submit an annual evaluation report and will continue to respond to the specific requirements of the signed grant agreement.
