Application Procedures

The Joanna Foundation normally offers three grant cycles per year with a two-part process. The first step is to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). After reviewing the LOIs, we invite a limited number of full proposals. Organizations may submit only one LOI in a calendar year unless specifically invited to re-submit. Please read our Grant Policies for additional requirements.

Confirm Eligibility

Organizations that receive funding in one year are not eligible to submit during the following calendar year.  Complete the online eligibility survey to confirm your eligibility. Do not skip this step.

Letter of Intent

The Letter of Intent (LOI) form is available at this link.  Save the form to your own platform before starting to complete it. Please follow the instructions on the LOI form. Questions can be asked via the contact form on this website.

The Joanna Foundation has three funding cycles per year with the following due dates for the required Letter of Intent:

  • January 15
  • May 15
  • September 15  

Letters of Intent may be submitted no earlier than 15 days before the due date. This means that the window for submission will open on the 1st of the month and LOIs must be submitted no later than 5 PM Eastern Time on the due date. Late submissions will not be accepted. 

Acceptance of LOIs may close early if the volume of submissions is very high. In this case, applicants will be notified promptly and encouraged to apply for a future due date.
