If you feel your project is a good match for The Aultman Foundation, submit a letter of inquiry during the appropriate time period.

Letters of Inquiry (LOI) for the 2020 grant round will be accepted Jan. 2, 2020 through Feb. 14, 2020. The LOI will be used to determine if the request fits The Aultman Foundation's guidelines. You may be asked to revise your request to better fit the guidelines.

Submit a one-page letter on your organization's letterhead, and include the following information:

  • Contact Information 
    • Name, Title, Organization, Mailing Address, Email, Phone Number
  • Organization’s Employee Identification Number (EIN)
  • Foundation Program Area 
    • Health Education, Wellness or Human Services
  • Community Health Need Addressed, if any 
    • Obesity, Mental Health, Infant Mortality, Opiate Addiction or Access to Care 
  • Brief Description of Your Organization
  • Brief Project Description
  • Counties Served by the Project
  • Amount to be Requested

Please keep your LOI to one page. Only one-page LOIs will be considered. Email is the preferred method of submitting your LOI. If you send a hard copy, please include an email address so a link to the online system can be sent to you. 

You should receive a reply within 7 days of submitting your LOI (10 days for hard copy LOIs). If you do not receive a reply within this time period, please contact Jennifer Penso by using the contact information below. 

If your project fits TAF guidelines, you will be emailed a link to access our online grant proposal system. Otherwise, you will be told why your proposal does not fit our guidelines and could not be accepted. 

Being asked to submit a full proposal does not guarantee that you will be funded or that you will be fully funded.

Please do not wait until the end of the grant period to submit your letter of inquiry. The online system to submit grants will require you to set up an account and get familiar with the software. All grants must be submitted through the online system by the deadline of Feb. 28. No hard copy proposals or late proposals will be accepted. Allow yourself enough time to enter all of the requested information.

Note that full proposals are by invitation only. The full application must be completed by Friday, Feb. 28, 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Penso at 330-363-6817.
