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.
Application review takes 4-6 weeks, with funding for selected proposals typically disbursed within 2-3 weeks following the decision announcement.
We rarely fund capital grants within the Open Call process.
