Apply for Grants

Thank you to those who submitted applications for our Fall 2019 Grant Cycle. Our Grants Committee is now reviewing submissions and we are no longer accepting applications. Please check back for information on our Spring 2020 Grants Cycle.



Welcome to our new, online grant application process! The Montclair Foundation now requires all grant-seekers to submit their applications on line. Since this is the first time using this system, all applicants will need to create an account. Please note, organizations may only apply for funding once every 12 months.

The online application consists of fields to be filled in, and attachments (documents) from you. Attachments can be Microsoft Word, Excel, or PDF files created on a copier/scanner. Do NOT include compressed ZIP files or password-protected files.

The following documents are to be submitted as required attachments to your online application:

  • Copy of the IRS letter of determination indicating 501(c)(3) tax exempt status

  • Organization’s operating budget for the coming year

  • List of the names of the organization’s Board of Directors

  • Audited Financial Statement for the most recent year available or a Form 990

  • Project budget

  • List of other sources of funding being solicited and their status to date with those sources

In all circumstances, please be sure to leave ample time for your attachments to reach us by the published deadline.
