First, review the Guide for Applicants to see if your project meets TGKVF’s criteria. If you feel like your project is a good match then you should email or call a program officer to discuss your project.
Funding decisions are made quarterly and you may view the quarterly timeline by clicking Timeline. Make sure that you contact a program officer at least 2-3 months before an application’s first draft due date to discuss your proposal idea. Applications must be submitted by 4pm on the days that they are due.
Three quotes or bids are required for any single item that is more than $1,000 in your budget. For example, if you need to purchase 200 books at the cost of $1,200, you would NOT need a bid because each book costs less than $1,000. If you need to purchase one piece of equipment that costs $1,200, you would need to submit at least three bids or quotes that demonstrate you’ve researched the vendor you’ve selected. Typically, any kind of construction cost (e.g. you are building a greenhouse) will require bids.
