Applying and Reporting

adult and child logo.jpg

The O.P. and W.E. Edwards Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications.

As a small foundation, we feel we cannot adequately evaluate proposals from organizations which are not directly familiar to us. Our experience has been that our most successful grants have been to groups with which one or more Trustees are closely acquainted.

New to Us? 

The Foundation does not accept unsolicited applications. 

Please send us an email if you would like us to learn more about your organization. 

Already have a grant with us? 

If you plan on submitting an application again this year, we ask that you try to submit by the same deadline as in the past. The application will ask for reporting information from your previous grant, so no need to submit a separate report. 

We prefer to accept application via our on-line grants management software, GLM. If you would prefer to submit a different way, please get in touch.

Need to change the timing of your grant or need to submit a report separately? Send us an email or call and we can undoubtedly make that happen.
