HOW TO APPLY

Organizations that have not previously been funded by the Literacy Initiative (since 2011) must submit a Letter of Inquiry by December 15 via regular email, not the online application. The subject should be “Education Grant: LOI” and the contact information is info@fleishhackerfoundation.org.  The Foundation will inform prospective applicants if a full proposal is invited by late December, in time for the January 15 application deadline.
