The below list of grantmakers accept or will soon be accepting
the Missouri Common Grant Application. Please check back regularly to see updates to this list. We expect grantmakers to slowly begin to adopt the Missouri Common Grant Application throughout late 2011 and 2012.
- Even if the grantmaker is listed above, check with them to ensure that they are using the Common Grant Application for the cycle for which you are applying. When possible you should always download the application directly from the grantmaker's website.
- Some grantmakers give applicants the choice of either using the CGA or a different format specified by the grantmaker while others on this list accept the common grant application only. Chech with the specific grantmaker.
- Some grantmakers will require additional information for their application, or they have made slight modifications to the application. Others may require a letter of intent prior to receiving an application.
It is critical that grantseekers visit grantmaker websites for the most up-to-date information about individual funding entities areas of interest, application requirements, deadlines, modifications to the CGA and other pertinent information. It would be a shame to waste time and energy on writing a grant that is quickly dismissed because it doesn’t fit with a grantmaker’s guidelines. Thorough research of your funder is a critical step in the application process.
While this list is updated periodically, we cannot guarantee that it is completely accurate. Again, check each grantmaker’s website prior to submitting an application. Where available, a link to the grantmaker’s website is provided. While you are able to download the forms from this site it is always best to download it directly from the grantmaker you are applying to to ensure you are using the version of the Common Grant Application accepted by them.
Lutheran Foundation of St. Louis has supported the development of the CGA because it has brought area grantmakers and grantseekers together in identifying a common set of questions that both reinforce solid nonprofit practices and provide robust information for the grant review process.
