How does the grant selection process work?


Our grant selection process has three major steps:

  1. Grant Application: Anyone who is interested in applying for an Effing Foundation grant completes an online application form to let us know who they are and what they would like funding for.
  2. Review of Grant Applications: Our staff and Advisory Council review the submitted applications. Approximately ten applications are selected to be finalists.
  3. Revisions and Funding Decisions: Finalists receive feedback on their applications from the Advisory Council. Finalists are given time to revise their applications before the applications are returned to the Advisory Council (who may update their funding recommendations based on those revisions). The revised applications are then sent to the Board of Directors for final approval.
