We anticipate making a limited number of Capital grants given the demand for Unrestricted Operating Support and in consideration of the Foundation’s Program Related Investment Fund, which provides low interest loans that can be used to support Capital-related projects.
The Foundation will only consider Capital grant requests that:
Bring new or significantly expanded services to designated Geographic Areas of Focus or to other under-resourced communities; and
Where project completion is unlikely without Weingart Foundation support.
While we will continue to accept unsolicited letters of inquiry (LOIs) for Capital support, given the highly competitive nature of this funding, applicants are strongly encouraged to talk with a member of our program staff before submitting an LOI for Capital funding.
