We are moving to an online platform for LOI and proposal submission! The platform chosen is one that many of you may be familiar with as it is used by several other foundations in our area. Our internal process of converting to this new system will take place over the next couple of months. The staff is receiving training and in the process of designing what your online experience will look like.
We ask for your understanding and patience along the way. Below are a couple of ways you may be able to help us in this process.
- While organizations currently submitting for the Community Needs cycle will not be submitting proposals online, we do ask that you submit your proposals as soon as possible to allow us to get everything processed in a quick and timely manner in order to begin our internal data conversion.
- For those who would like to submit an LOI for the Education and Youth October 3rd deadline if you could wait until closer to the deadline this will give us time to get our new process up and running. If you submit the old way it is possible we will contact you to resubmit when the new process goes live. We are hoping the new platform will be established and ready for use by mid-September.
As we move along and get closer to going live with this process, we will share more information with you and should be able to offer some training videos and access to additional information and materials on our website.
If you have any questions for us, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or Joyce. It is our desire that this will be a smooth transition and the new process will be more efficient for all of us!
