Application Guidelines

As of January 1st the Burning Foundation is changing to an on line application portal. This means we will no longer be accepting applications over email.

Any outstanding final reports due from work complete in 2017 and 2018 are still accepted via email to [email protected].

When to Apply

Please note the new deadlines

Spring Cycle Last Friday of March First Wednesday of May
Fall Cycle Last Friday of September First Wednesday of November
Application Instructions
  1. All applicants must fill out a letter of interest by the Spring or Fall due date. (It does not matter if you have applied in the past.)
  2. Applicants will receive a notification whether they will be asked to submit a proposal at least one week prior to the Spring or Fall proposal due date.
  3. If you have applied in one calendar year and your application was denied this means you must wait until the following calendar year to apply again with a new application.


Please note that starting in 2019 new multi-year grants are no longer offered by the Burning Foundation.
