Apply for a Grant

To Apply or Submit a Grant Report:


The Tower Foundation offers three opportunities to apply for funding each year. For information on eligibility, deadlines, instructions, and more, click on the guidelines below that correspond to the portfolio in which you wish to apply:

  • Strengthening Partners Guidelines (pdf)  [Includes the Small Grants Program and *Technology Grants]
    *NOTE: 2018 will be the last year for the Tower Foundation's Technology Initiative. Although the Foundation is ending its Technology Initiative after 2018, it will still consider technology planning and implementation grant requests in the future as part of a more comprehensive range of capacity building opportunities. This approach will allow us to be more flexible and responsive to community needs, and will help us place technology in a broader organizational context. We will release updated Strengthening Partners guidelines towards the end of 2018 .

Please note: agencies may only submit one grant request per cycle.
