Application Procedures

We plan to switch to an online submission process. We appreciate your patience while we select software, customize and test it. We will continue to have three grant cycles per year involving submission of a pre-proposal and invitation of a limited number of applicants to develop full proposals. We will continue to accept only one pre-proposal per organization in a calendar year, unless we specifically suggest a re-submission..

Confirm Eligibility

Make sure you are eligible even if your organization has received support in the past. You can continue to use this link to confirm your eligibility. Do not skip this step.


New information will be forthcoming. Please check this site for updates.


The Joanna Foundation has three funding cycles per year, with the following due dates for mandatory pre-proposals:

  • January 15 – Cancelled for 2020
  • April 15
  • September 15  

Pre-proposals 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. Pre-proposals must be submitted no later than 5 PM Eastern Time on the due date. Late submissions will not be accepted. 

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