The Kauffman Foundation does not use a grant application form or formal application process. We do not have proposal deadlines or established funding limits. We have not established maximum or minimum dollar amounts. Grant amounts vary depending the scope of the specific project and the size of the organization.
After reviewing our funding priorities, if you feel there is a strong match with your request, you may submit a letter of inquiry, preferably less than three pages long. The Foundation does not accept proposals submitted via audiotape or videotape.
Please keep in mind that although your project may appear to fall under the guidelines of what we fund, the area of funding may not accept unsolicited proposals.
Please check our list of resources for individuals and organizations that may be able to provide you with additional guidance or support.
Thank you for your interest in the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and for taking time to learn about the education and entrepreneurship efforts that we support.
