Does the Boettcher Foundation award multi-year grants?

In the past, we have not generally awarded multi-year grants. However, we may consider multi-year grant proposals that best align with our funding priorities.

What is the process of applying for a grant?

Submission of the inquiry form during the open grant cycle window is the initial step in our process.
