The Ellbogen Foundation will not have a formal grantmaking process in the fall of 2020, and has not identified dates for a formal grant cycle at this time. The Foundation Board and staff continue to assess the needs of people across Wyoming, and will support COVID-19 relief and recovery efforts. Please check the website for updates to this process.


Grant Requests

The Ellbogen Foundation requires that an electronic Letter of Inquiry be submitted before an invitation for a formal grant proposal is considered. Organizations will be notified shortly after the LOI submission of an invitation to put forward a formal proposal. 

Formal Grant Proposals are invited once per year around the a Fall Board meeting. Grant funding is awarded through a competitive process. You will be notified of the Board's funding decision after the group meets.
