Welcome to the online home for Missouri Common Grant Application (CGA).
The Missouri Common Grant Application allows grantmakers and grantseekers to work from a common set of questions and definitions that reinforce solid nonprofit practices.
On this webpage you will find the Missouri Common Grant Application Materials which includes:
- Missouri Common Grant Application
The full length application.
- Short Form
A shorter version of the application that can also be used as a Letter of Intent.
- Budget Templates
Includes a project budget template, organizational budget template, a capital campaign budget instruction sheet.
- User Guide
Walks grantseekers through the application questions. It includes a glossary of terms, instructions, and examples on how to answer questions. The user guide adds clarity to the application process and provides answers for many of the questions that arise during grant preparation.
Please be aware that grantmakers may accept one of these forms, but not necessarily
all of them. Click on Who Accepts These Forms
to learn which grantmakers accept which form(s) or visit an individual grantmaker’s website.
NOTE: Each of the grantmakers that accepts the CGA has different funding priorities and areas of interest. Prior to submitting a proposal it is your responsibility to determine whether your organization meets a grantmaker’s guidelines and funding priorities. Always check each grantmaker’s website for the most current information on their grant application and reporting requirements, and contact them if you have questions.
"The CGA is a “win-win” model. It simplifies the grant application process for nonprofits and it organizes data and information systematically for funders."
