Applicants whose proposed projects fit the Foundation’s priorities and interests will be advised to submit the Letter of Intent form to determine eligibility and the extent to which the Foundation’s interests and funds permit consideration of a full proposal. After the Letter of Intent form is reviewed, applicants will be informed by Foundation staff whether a proposal will be invited.
The Lloyd K. Johnson Foundation accepts the Letter of Intent form on a year-round basis. Full proposals (over $3,500) will be reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors at regularly scheduled Board meetings held in March, June, September and December. An applicant submitting a full proposal may expect a decision within three months after submittal. Short-form proposals for requests $3,500 and under will be reviewed year-round with decisions made within 10 days.
