Can I nominate a nonprofit? 

Absolutely! We always want to get connected with great nonprofits and organizations. If you send an email to with your recommendation, we will reach out to the organization you nominated to see if they are a good fit. 

What if my proposal wasn’t funded?

We don’t enjoy saying no, but sometimes proposals aren’t a good fit or other proposals take priority. Still, we value the work you do and would be glad to talk through our decision and offer feedback for future proposals. Email and we’ll find a time to connect. 

What do you fund?

Lots of things! We welcome proposals for most types of funding that align with our focus areas. You can learn more about what we do and don’t fund in our eligibility guidelines.

Do you award multi-year grants?  

Yes, but usually for organizations with whom we have an established partnership. Keep in mind that you will not be able to apply for other Roundhouse grants while actively receiving a multi-year grant. Please reach out to a Roundhouse representative should you be interested in a multi-year grant.

Any tips or tricks?   

Unfortunately, we can’t say ‘yes’ to everyone. Our best tips? Paint a picture — a world with and without your efforts. Demonstrate the impact. Be authentic: leave the script at the door. Have vision. Be honest about what you need, want, and/or have learned. Follow through. Ask questions! We are here to help. Reach out any time at

What’s the application process?  

We know grant applications can be gruesome, especially if you don’t have a “grant-writing person” on your team. We’ve tried to make our process as streamlined as possible, but always welcome feedback for improvement. Learn more about our open grant opportunities here.
