DEADLINES ARE FIRM!
Applications not received by the above deadlines will be moved to the next grant cycle. Applications not filled out completely online by the deadlines will not be submitted for consideration.
If you do not receive an acknowledgment of your proposal within 5 business days, please contact our offices to verify that your submission has been received.
SUBMISSION OF PROPOSALS FOR LESS THAN $25,000
Each year the Foundation considers a limited number of proposals in amounts less than $25,000. The above deadlines do not apply, and consideration is given on a rolling basis. Every proposal must adhere to HFNJ’s Grant Guidelines and be submitted online as indicated above. Grants considered in this limited, fast-track pool are generally awarded as one-time support and not considered for renewal. They should address urgent circumstances and/or be time sensitive, or fund limited-time initiatives. Proposals that request HFNJ support for projects much larger in scope will most likely be declined. Please call Michael Schmidt, CEO, if you have any questions before submitting a proposal.
