The Morris & Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation is committed to building a stronger community for residents of the Washington, DC area through support of programs in arts and humanities, community services, education, health and the environment.
To be considered for funding, an organization must submit a complete proposal, not a Letter of Inquiry (LOI). LOI's are not required.
Organizations may submit a proposal for only one deadline within a 12-month period. For example, if a proposal is submitted for the November 1 deadline, the organization must wait until the following November 1 deadline to submit another proposal.
If your organization meets the funding criteria, you are eligible to submit a proposal. The Foundation requires that all organizations use the Washington Grantmakers' Common Grant Application.
Proposal deadlines are March 1, July 1 and November 1, and proposals must be received in the office no later than 4:00 p.m. on these dates. Postmark dates do not apply. Please note, while they may be submitted anytime, proposals received between deadlines will be held for consideration in the following grant cycle.
