Our Grantmaking Process

Traditionally, The Prospect Hill Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications for either its Program or Sponsored grants. However, with the launch of the Foundation’s new Youth Program, The Prospect Hill Foundation will have an open call for applications specific to this program in the fall of 2019.

Sponsored grants are approved at one of the Foundation’s four board meetings throughout the year, September/October, December, April, and June, and Sponsored grantees can expect to receive an invitation to submit a proposal roughly two months prior to their invited board meeting. Payments for approved Sponsored grants will generally be sent out within a week following the meeting.

Program grants are made on a rolling basis and are generally dictated by the meeting schedule of The Prospect Hill Foundation’s Program Committees.

Any questions related to the Foundation’s grantmaking or the grant application process can be directed to grants@prospect-hill.org.
