Grant Making

Grant Making Process

Step 1: Determine your eligibility

The Woodworth Family Foundation supports nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations in Tacoma and Pierce County whose projects emphasize education, youth services, health care and human services. Our grants typically range from $2,500 to $25,000.

Step 2: Submit a Letter of Inquiry (this is an online process only)

Our grantmaking process always begins with an online Letter of Inquiry (LOI). The process is the same for past grantees and new grant seekers. The LOI provides us with detailed information about your organization, program, and overall alignment with our goals. There are no deadlines for LOIs. We respond to all LOIs within 60 days.

Step 3: Submit a proposal (by invitation only)
Following review of your LOI, we will contact you if you have been selected to submit a application.

Step 4: Application review and response

The entire process from proposal application to Board decision generally takes from 3 to 6 months.

Grant reporting requirements are determined by grant amount and project specifications. Requirements will be outlined in award notification letters.
