Although we understand that nonprofits have multiple needs, we’d like all applicants to choose the focus area that’s the best fit.
We don’t have a set amount or average grant size. The minimum grant is $5,000. Grant amounts are based on the strength of the program and how many people it impacts as well as how it aligns with our pillars and mission. We like to build our giving amounts as we build a relationship with the grantee.
From the top of this page, select Apply online. Then, select New Applicant? Enter the email address you want assigned to this account, and create a password. Once you create an online account, you’ll receive an email notification that includes the email address and password required to access your saved application.

The account used to submit this grant request, if approved, will be linked to any future requirements and reports.
Once the application has been started, you can print a copy by selecting Printer-Friendly Version located in the top right-hand corner of the application page.
You’ll need to include a list of your organization’s board of directors and annual operating budget. If applicable, you may be asked to include information on a project or program budget and clarification of supporting organization status.
Yes. Just select Save and Finish Later at the bottom of the application page you’re on. When you’re ready to continue entering information, go to the grant application sign-in page. You’ll be asked to enter your account email address and password before accessing your saved application.
If you selected Save and Finish Later the last time you worked on your application, you should have an email from firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email, there’s a link to the grant application sign in page. You’ll be asked to enter your account email address and password before accessing your saved application. Once you enter the portal using the link provided, filter by in progress applications on the right-hand side.
Once the application is completed, select Review & Submit at the bottom of the last page of the application. Once your application has been submitted, we’ll send a confirmation email to the email address you used to create your online grant application account. Add email@example.com to your email address book (or friendly senders) to make sure that messages arrive in your inbox. To maintain a fair process, we can’t accept paper or verbal requests.
The application is compatible with these browsers:
Select Forgot password? From the sign in screen. We’ll send an email to your account email address with a temporary password and an opportunity to create a new password. If you don’t receive an email, the account sign-in username you entered wasn’t valid.
Before resetting your password, confirm you’re visiting this site when trying to sign in. Next, verify you’re not using an old account from a SunTrust Foundation email. If it’s a SunTrust Foundation account, you’ll need to create a new Truist account. We also recommend adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your email safe list because it’s often caught in junk mail. If the issue continues, set up a new account under a different email address.
Check that your internet browser is compatible with the online grant application. If it is, try deleting your browser history and cache.
If your EIN isn’t recognized, it’s because it doesn’t appear as a tax-exempt entity in Guidestar Candid or the IRS Business Master File. There are several possible reasons why it doesn’t appear, including if your organization is a government-related entity, is newly established, or is a religious organization. We only grant to organizations that are listed as eligible nonprofit organizations that can go through Guidestar’s charity check process.
We aren’t able to modify applications after we receive them. The only way you can correct or update your application is to resubmit a new proposal. If you proceed with a new application please email email@example.com to request that we delete your initial application.
Confirm that you’ve uploaded all the required attachments. After you choose Browse to locate the file you want to attach, make sure you select the Upload button.
Make sure the email address used to access the online account is the same one used to submit the original grant request. The Grant Acknowledgment Form and/or Grant Report are linked to that account. If you no longer have access to that account, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you’ve signed in, there are two tabs at the top of the page. Select the Requirements tab. Then, use the dropdown menu on the right side of the screen to check New Requirements, In Progress Requirements, and Submitted Requirements.
