Grant Process

To request a grant please follow the steps below:


  • Review the grant guidelines to ensure you qualify for a grant from The Kahlert Foundation. 

  • Contact the appropriate person for your region to initiate discussions.

  • Schedule a meeting and, if applicable, a tour.

  • Submit a written proposal.


The board typically meets three times a year. Grant requests should be submitted at the beginning of the previous month if they are to be considered at that board meeting. The earlier a grant request is received the greater the likelihood the grant will be reviewed and presented at the next board meeting.

Board Meeting

Grant Request Deadline

Organizations will be notified of the decision by the board of directors approximately two weeks after the board meeting. The foundation regrets that our resources are limited and are unable to support all good ideas and proposals. The Kahlert Foundation’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.
