If you're interested in applying for a grant from the Effing Foundation to support your sex-positive work, this page collects all of the resources that we have available for grant applicants. We'll continue to update this page as additional resources are available. Last updated: July 22, 2021.

  • Grant Program Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): Our FAQ covers many questions about our grant program, including who is eligible to apply, what grant funds can be used for, and more.
  • Text-Only Version of Grant Application (September 2011): This is a text-only version of our application form. It's not the actual application form, which will be hosted on Submittable, but you can use this page to see what the application questions will be ahead of time.
  • Evaluation Guide: This guide describes how the Foundation will be evaluating each section of your grant application.
  • Example Budgets and Blank Budget Template: All applicants will be asked to submit either an annual budget or a $5,000 budget. If you don't already have a budget, you can use our blank template and/or use our example budgets as reference.
