RGK Foundation awards grants in the broad areas of Education, Community, and Health/Medicine.
How to Apply
RGK Foundation no longer accepts unsolicited grant proposals. All applicants must complete an electronic Letter of Inquiry from the Web site as the first step. RGK Foundation will entertain one electronic Letter of Inquiry (LOI) per organization in a twelve-month period. Organizations that submit unsolicited proposals will receive notification directing them to submit an electronic Letter of Inquiry via the Web site. After reading the remaining application guidelines, you may click on the link at the bottom of the page to begin.
There is no deadline for submitting an electronic Letter of Inquiry. Foundation staff reviews electronic Letters of Inquiry on an ongoing basis and typically responds within two days, although we ask that you allow up to two weeks for a response. The Foundation will send an e-mail message either declining your request or inviting you to submit a formal application packet for further consideration. If you are invited to submit an application packet, your message will include detailed instructions on how to apply. Please allow up to four months for proposals to be reviewed by staff. In some cases, a phone conference or site visit may be scheduled as part of the review process. The Grants Committee typically meets four times each year to consider requests over $100,000 that have been recommended by staff for review. You will be notified if your proposal will be considered at one of the Grants Committee meetings or will take longer than four months to review.
