Timeframe for Applying
While we accept grant applications throughout the year, we ask that grant applications be submitted by the following dates:
- January 1 for Grant Committee review in March
- April 1 for Grant Committee review in June
- July 1 for Grant Committee review in September
- October 1 for Grant Committee review in December
Only completed grant applications from eligible organizations will be considered for funding. Applicants should make every effort to ensure their application includes all financial, budget, and other attachments required in our online application process. If an application is received incomplete, it may delay the review to a later date.
Monterey Peninsula Foundation uses an online portal to accept grant applications and reports. We highly recommend that those new to the online portal review the Portal Guide and Helpful Hints before beginning a new grant application or report.
Grant reports are available by logging in to the online portal. The reports are assigned to the primary contact of the grant. If your organization cannot find the assigned grant report or are unsure that a report has been completed or assigned, please contact:
