The Foundation welcomes Letters of Inquiry (LOI) through our online grantee portal. LOIs are reviewed on an ongoing basis; the Logan Foundation does not have submission deadlines for our grants. We accept applications for both projects and general operations.
Before submitting an LOI, please visit Our Approach to familiarize yourself with our funding guidelines and program areas as well as the Grants Awarded page to determine if you will be a good fit for the Logan Foundation.
To complete the LOI, you will fill out a short form explaining your organization and the project or reason you are seeking a grant. You will be contacted via email when your LOI has been considered. We recommend adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to ensure that e-mails sent by the Foundation reach your inbox.
If your LOI is accepted, we will contact you about conducting a site visit.
