 The Kahlert Foundation uses a two-stage application process.  In this first stage, your organization must use this form to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to provide a brief overview of your organization and the project to be considered.  The LOI enables us to determine if your request for funding fits our Mission Statement prior to you taking the time to submit a full application.

Only successful LOIs will move on to the full application process where you will be required to submit a detailed application and participate in a Site visit or meeting.

The board typically meets three times a year. Grant requests (LOI and full application) are to be submitted at the beginning of the previous month if they are to be considered at that board meeting. The earlier a grant request is received the greater the likelihood the grant will be reviewed and presented at the next board meeting.

Deadlines: 

 By January 1 for February Board Meeting

 By May 1 for June Board Meeting

 By September 1 for October Board Meeting

The Kahlert Foundation’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.

The Development Office is currently seeking pre-proposals for the B.W. Bastian Foundation’s spring round of funding. Only one pre-proposal submission for your College / Campus Area. If you were funded in 2021, please be sure to complete a grant report, here, before applying again.  The B. W. Bastian typically supports intitiatives that promote equality for the LGBTQ+ community.  

Things to consider before applying:
-Has your campus area received support in the past? The Foundation tends to support areas that have received support in the past. There are some exceptions particularly if the project fits closely with the Foundation’s mission to support the LGBTQ community. Additionally, if your campus area has received 3 years of consecutive funding, you may be asked by the Foundation to refrain from reapplying for 1 year). 

-Is this for a multi-year grant? The Foundation avoids multiple year grants, and only accept grants once in a calendar year from any organization – in our case, campus areas. 

-What will funds be used towards? Typically, the Foundation does not accept proposals for buildings or large capital projects. Additionally, the Foundation does not make grants to medical research. The Foundation does accept requests for general operating support, project support, specific programs, advocacy, capacity building, non-profit film productions, and scholarship projects). 

-Is this for a sponsorship for either a specific production or exhibit? (The Foundation recently indicated that they will support educational outreach efforts but likely not a specific production or performance). 

-When are funds needed? (For the Spring 2022 round, funds will likely be awarded in late May/early June). What is the geographic focus of the proposal? (Primarily, the foundation funds in the Intermountain West region of the United States which includes Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana). 

-Does this proposal directly fit the scope of the Foundation’s mission? (the foundation will support educational outreach efforts but not specific performance.)
