Grant Program Resource Guide Out Now


Grant applications open on September 1, 2021!

The Effing Foundation grant cycle officially returns on Sept. 1, 2021. Grant applications will go live on Sept. 1 and close on Sept. 30. Applications are the first step in the grant process, where creators are able to share their projects with the Effing Advisory Council. 

When Dr. Kit Stubbs created the Effing Foundation, they intentionally wanted to disrupt and demystify the process of applying for grants. Over the past year, Kit, the Advisory Council, and the Board of Directors have made several changes to support grant applicants as well as to improve the overall application experience.

Click here for a text version of the 2021 grant application in its entirety. This is exactly what the grant application will look like when it goes live Sept. 1 on Submittable. As an accessibility note, if you use a screen reader, the 2021 grant application is also available as a Google document. 

Have you received a grant from the Effing Foundation at any point in the past? Please email [email protected] to request the correct form for returning applicants. 

By sharing the grant application early, our hope is that applicants will be able learn more about the requirements of applying, thereby helping to streamline the entire cycle.
