TIMEFRAME FOR APPLYING

Grant Cycles

Monterey Peninsula Foundation has three grant cycles each year (Summer, Fall, and Winter).

Foundation staff will work with grantees and applicants to select the best application timeframes for their needs. Once a home cycle is selected, we require grantees and applicants to remain within that cycle for future applications.

Please review the following forms and documents:

Home Cycle Selection Questionnaire

Application Cycle Change FAQ

Only completed applications from eligible organizations will be considered for funding during their home cycle timeline. Applicants that miss reporting and application deadlines will be asked to wait a year before applying. Strict adherence to these deadlines is critical to ensure the agency can apply for support annually.

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 be denied.
