Using the Online Grant System

Once you’ve confirmed that your project fits within the guidelines, you can use the Initiative Foundation’s online grant system to create an account, complete an eligibility quiz, submit inquiries and proposals, review your application history and submit grant reports.

To use the system, choose Start Application:

The final date to submit grant applications is November 30 each year.

The grants committee will review applications during the month of December and award grants in January.


If you have questions about our online grant application system or experience technical issues, please contact Kate Bjorge via email or at (320) 631-2048.
