Schedule for Funding

Our 2018 funding prioritizes opportunities to build on efforts underway as well as the areas where there is room to do much more to advance the goals of our five-year plan. This year we are pleased to have funding available for projects toward our Coalition Effectiveness and Nonprofit Capacity Building goals. 

The John Rex Endowment will have one grant award cycle this year, the Fall Grant Award Cycle. The Request for Proposals for this cycle is released in May.

Following our strategic planning process, we will make an announcement regarding funding opportunities. Because of the uncertainty of a Winter Grant Award Cycle, all dates are listed as "to be determined".
