The Summer Fund requests that prospective grantees complete a Letter of Intent (LOI) to apply for resources. The letter of intent will collect key contact information from our partners and will provide us with critical information as we consider your request.
In completing this LOI, you will be asked to login to a Philanthropy MA account. We ask that you please use the account of your organization's principal point of contact for Summer Fund related communications. If the account that you have used in the past is in the name of someone that is no longer with your organization, we ask that you please create a new account with updated contact information. If you have any questions regarding account creation, we will happily provide support.
Following your submission of this webform, we will be conducting brief meetings with appropriate staff in an effort to better understand your organization's approach to and plans for summer programming. Our goal with these conversations will be to better understand the needs of our partners as we plan our 2022 grantmaking processes. We hope to have completed these meetings by the end of March to ensure that we can make our grant decisions as early as possible.
Following our conversations with prospective grantees, the Summer Fund will be requesting a formalized application. The full application will collect data regarding your summer program's model (planned activities, projected program scale, etc.) and organizational information (financials, licensing, etc.). We will aim to make the application available following your organization's meeting with Summer Fund staff and intend to set a deadline of Friday, April 15th for its completion.
The deadline for submitting this LOI webform is Friday, February 4th by midnight. If you have any questions, please contact Sean Higgins via email or by phone at 508-468-7262.
