2019 Knight Foundation Grant Opportunity
The Knight Foundation Fund, a fund with the Long Beach Community Foundation, supports the success of our communities through investments that
- attract, retain, and harness talent;
- expand opportunity by increasing entrepreneurship and economic mobility;
- support civic infrastructure to accelerate the growth of ideas and bring people from diverse social and economic backgrounds together.
Such projects and programs will enable our communities to succeed in a rapidly changing world. After carefully reviewing the grant focus, submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) (not to exceed one page) that includes the following:
- An introduction to your organization.
- Your organization’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax identification number.
- A description of your project and specifically how it meets the grant criteria.
- Project start and completion dates.
- Project budget.
- Total grant request. (Grants are typically awarded between $10,000 and $50,000.)
Upon timely receipt, your LOI will be reviewed for eligibility and relationship to the grant focus. Projects that best meet the grant priorities will be invited to submit a full proposal.
All LOIs must be received no later than 5 pm on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 by email to email@example.com (PDF Format) or postal mail to: LBCF, 400 Oceangate, Suite 800, Long Beach, CA 90802.
