In 2021, we are pleased to offer multiple ways to apply for a grant with Roundhouse Foundation. Prior to applying, take a look at our focus areas and eligibility guidelines to help you tailor your proposal.
We understand smaller organizations or flagship programs may not have a need for a significant budget, and we believe small grants can support grassroots, innovative work in an effective way. Small grants also offer opportunities to explore and test new approaches and endeavors which can then be replicated for broader impact.
We are unable to consider requests for general operating support through the small grants process.
Organizations may apply for one small grant per year to support an innovation or important project. Applications will be evaluated on a monthly basis throughout 2021, with funding for selected proposals disbursed within 2-3 weeks following the decision announcement.
Organizations that fit within our focus areas and eligibility guidelines may submit a proposal to one of our Open Call grant cycles. Organizations may submit one Open Call Proposal per year, as long as they have no other active grants with the Foundation. Preferred proposals span 12-18 months.
Multi-year awards may be considered for organizations that have an established relationship with Roundhouse (Fall Open Call process only). Please reach out to a Roundhouse representative if you are interested in a multi-year opportunity.
Requested amount is not to exceed $100,000, and it is rare Roundhouse awards the maximum. Median awards range from $5,000-$20,000.
