HOW TO APPLY
Since inception, Tiger Foundation has provided more than $250 million in grants to organizations working to break the cycle of poverty in New York City. Our grantees have demonstrated consistently that when provided with the right opportunities and circumstances, people have the assets and the abilities needed to build brighter futures for themselves and their families. If you believe your organization’s funding needs fit within the Foundation’s Guidelines, consider submitting a Letter of Inquiry (LOI).
Letters of Inquiry are acknowledged upon receipt. After receiving a Letter of Inquiry, the initial review process may take between four and six weeks. Should the foundation be able to more formally consider your request, program staff will reach out to you directly.
PLEASE NOTE: Most of our Emergency Fund grants at this time will be directed to existing Tiger Foundation grantees. Due to our focus on responding to the COVID-19 crisis, there is limited capacity to review new requests at this time. However, if you would like to submit a Letter of Inquiry, please understand that our response times are likely to be significantly delayed and that our focus for the immediate-term is on providing assistance as it relates to COVID-19’s impact on children and families.
Please note there are no deadlines for submitting Letters of Inquiry. The Foundation reviews qualified Letters of Inquiry on a year-round, rolling basis. You may contact us atif you need assistance completing the application or have technical questions.
