Letter of Inquiry

The first step in our grantmaking process is for you to submit an online letter of inquiry.

Nonprofit organizations that are recognized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and provide services that benefit residents of Kalamazoo County are eligible to apply for grants.

You may submit your LOI at any time throughout the year. Note, there are specific deadlines for requests of more than $25,000. As we continue with a simplified grant application process, there will be just one deadline for each round. Upcoming deadlines for requests over $25,000 are:

  • Thursday, March 25, 2021 by 5 p.m.
  • Thursday, September 23, 2021 by 5 p.m.

LOIs – including those for funding requests of $25,000 or more – are reviewed on the first Wednesday of every month.

If you have questions, please contact Kari Benjamin Hamann at kbenjamin@kalfound.org or 269.381.4416.
