Frequently Asked Questions

Do you fund projects outside of your two focus areas?

No, we limit our funding to projects that fit into one of those areas.

Do you fund start-ups?

No, we generally will not fund an organization that has not been operating for at least 2 years.

When can we expect to hear from you regarding our application?

The first step in applying is to submit an LOI. If approved, you will be notified via email to submit a proposal. If we have questions, you will be contacted via email. Otherwise, the proposal will be reviewed at the next meeting and you will receive notification of decision within two weeks after the meeting.

Can we schedule a conference call before submitting an LOI?

No, we need to review the LOIprior to setting a meeting or call.

Why wasn't our proposal approved for funding?

Please keep in mind the Glass Foundation has limited funds available each year. Once a project has been determined to fit within our funding areas, we have three points we consider:

  1. Is there is substantial need for this project?
  2. Is the impact and scope of the project in line with the amount of funding requested?
  3. Is the project compelling and of interest to the Board of Directors?
