Apply for a Grant

The rolling application period is open.

Eligibility

To receive a grant, you need to be a 501c3 organization or be fiscally sponsored by a 501c3. If you are neither, we can help connect you to fiscal sponsors. Organizations must be based in the United States.

There are two categories in our grant-making:  

  1. Individual Projects

  2. Networks, Convenings and Collaborations that enhance movement building

The Application Process

We have moved to a new application process. Organizations can submit a letter of introduction at any point in the year, letting us know a bit about your organization and how you would use a potential grant from us. The letters of introduction will be reviewed by the Advisory Circle in the fall. After which, we will reach out for more information if we need it.

 

If you have already received a grant from Life Comes From It, you do not need to send a letter of introduction; we have you on our list of organizations to consider for funding.

 

​The Application process is simple, please use the online platform below to submit your letter of introduction. Organizations are required to answer a few simple questions online. You are welcome to submit a video no longer than five minutes instead of written responses. We also request that you include two references and a resume or bio.
