Application Process

We are now soliciting letters of inquiry year-round directly from non-profits working in our focus areas. If you're interested in pursuing a Mother House Fund grant, please send us a one- to two-page letter of inquiry describing your organization and your services. Your letter should include your full contact information, including an e-mail address. Upon review of your letter, The Mother House Fund will provide a formal grant application via e-mail to selected organizations. If you are asked to submit a full application, The Mother House Fund staff carefully reviews the content, and often contacts the applicant to learn more about their organization. A grant decision typically is made within three months after the receipt of a completed application.

Please submit your letter of inquiry through our contact form.
