STEP 2

Submit a letter of inquiry (LOI) or give us a call. (OPTIONAL)

Although not required, we strongly recommend this step for first-time applicants, those who have been turned down in the past, or those who are uncertain of fit and alignment with the Foundation’s interests. A letter of inquiry submitted within three weeks of a grant deadline may not be reviewed until the following grant cycle.

STEP 3

Create an account or login to our online portal.

Once logged in, follow the instructions to begin a new grant application and take a brief eligibility quiz (have your federal tax ID number handy).

Note: If an online account was previously established for your organization under a different user’s email that is no longer active, please contact us to re-associate the account. Provide us your organization name, the old email address and the new email address.

STEP 4

Download the Colorado Common Grant Application (CGA).

The CGA template includes a list of required attachments and narrative questions. You are now ready to begin preparing your application materials.

STEP 5

Complete the online application and upload your documents.

Login to your online account to complete and submit your application by 5 p.m. on either of our two annual deadline dates (January 15 or August 1). Note: If a deadline date falls on a weekend, proposals are due the preceding Friday. If you are unable to complete the proposal in one sitting, you have the ability to save the form and return to complete it at a later time. You can access your account from the Grantee Login button at the top of this page or from the link you received via email when your application was saved to finish later.

Due to the large volume of grant applications we receive, our review process takes about four months. Your application will be assigned to one of our staff members for review. We will contact you if we have any questions, need additional information or to schedule a site visit. We will communicate the board’s decision about your proposal by mail in late May or late November, depending upon the grant cycle in which you’ve applied.

We’re here to help! Please don’t hesitate to call or email us if you have any questions. Our grants manager, Elaine England, can be reached at 303-293-2338 or info@anschutzfamily.org.
