Timeline for funding decisions
The Foundation thanks all those who submitted applications for our 2019 funding. We are currently reviewing applications and will be in touch by October regarding site visits or calls as well as requests for additional information. Decisions will be finalized by November 1st.
Foundation to Request Proposals for 2019
After careful consideration, the Foundation has decided to no longer hold an open application process. Starting in summer 2019, Helen’s Hope Foundation will now submit requests for proposals to organizations we have worked with or are interested in working with. If you are contacted by us and interested in applying, your application will be due by August 1st.
Any questions, you can contact MallorySilva@helenshopefoundation.org (FL and PA organizations) or HollieSaborido@helenshopefoundation.org (NY organizations).
Potential New Grant Application Process for 2019
The board is currently considering a new grant application process. We are taking time to finalize this decision and will have the process updated by June 1st.
For those interested in applying, look back by then (June 1st) for details.
Evaluation Forms Due May 1st
We will be reaching out to all funded organizations regarding evaluation forms soon. We will provide you with our evaluation form by April 1, 2019 and ask that it be returned to us by May 1, 2019.
In order to be eligible for future funding we must receive this form. For programs that have not yet happened, we ask that you notify us and then attach your evaluation form to your next application.
