Lenfest Institute Grant Processes

The Lenfest Institute welcomes grant applications in response to grant programs announced and listed on the Institute’s website. All grant applications must be submitted through the Institute’s grant-management portal. The Institute staff designs grant applications and evaluation processes appropriate for the goals of the grant programs. All applications are reviewed by a staff grants committee, which recommends grants for approval, either to senior management or to the Board, depending on the size of the grant and the source of funds for it.

In addition, groups who are interested in grants that don’t fit with the Institute’s active grant programs are invited to send letters of inquiry to [email protected] and may be invited to apply for grants if the proposed activities align with the Institute’s mission and priorities.
