New York Foundation makes core grants of $45,000, renewable for up to 3 years for established groups and 5 years for emerging organizations. We have two grant cycles per year. Our next application deadline is July 1st.
- All applicants will receive a response within 2 weeks after the deadline.
- A limited number of applications that fit our criteria and priorities will be asked to schedule a site visit with program staff to learn more about the work and submit additional materials. All site visits are currently virtual due to COVID-19.
- From those selected for site visits, program staff will recommend a limited number of organizations to our Board of Trustees. The Board meets in June for our March 1st deadline, and grantees will be notified after the board meeting. If you are not recommended for a grant, you will receive a small honorarium for the site visit.
Please note that the application process is competitive. We receive hundreds of requests each cycle and typically are only able to make around 4 new grants each cycle due to our commitment to renewal grants.
