2021 Grant Programs

2021 Grant Opportunities to Open Friday, January 1

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.

Small Grants Under $2500

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. Organizations may apply for one small grant per year to support an innovation or important project. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis.


Open Call for Proposals

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. Requested amount is not to exceed $100,000. We are unable to fund capital grants within the Open Call process.

Prior to applying, please review our focus areas and eligibility guidelines to ensure your proposal aligns with our funding priorities.
