Grantmaking

We partner with organizations and projects that build the power of communities to reimagine, recreate, and reform systems to achieve racial equity.

A Systems Approach

We apply a systems approach to achieve a just, connected, and inclusive Greater Washington. This means our work and the work we support seeks to:

Address Root Causes

Address the root causes of racial disparities in housing, education, and economic well-being.

Change the System

Shift the conditions, policies, practices, priorities, culture, and power to create systems that are equitable and inclusive.

Build Leadership in Communities

Build the power and leadership of the people most directly affected by inequity based on the unique context of their experiences.

Where We Fund

We support organizations and projects working in the following areas:

  • District of Columbia;
  • Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland;
  • The cities of Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax City, Manassas and/or Manassas Park, and the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, and/or Prince William in Northern Virginia.

What We Support

Organizations and projects most aligned with our priorities will:

  • Apply a systems change approach to achieve Inclusive & Equitable Neighborhoods, Inclusive & Equitable Schools, and/or an Inclusive & Equitable Economy in our funding geography
  • Are working on specific opportunities to advance systems toward racial justice and equity. These opportunities have the potential, when combined with efforts of others, to create significant, multi-generational improvements for people and communities of color in housing, education, and economic well-being
  • Build and share power and leadership with their constituents, actively engaging them in decision-making
  • Actively participate in broader organizing, movement, and/or field-building activities to advance racial equity in the Greater Washington region

Grantees FAQ

Are there any system requirements for using Meyer’s grantee portal?

There are no special system requirements for using our portal. You may use any browser, but we recommend using Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. You may also use a mobile device.

Our funding is not yet fully expended, but our grant report is now due. What should we do?

Please contact Meyer’s Grants Director or your Partnerships and Strategy Director if you believe you will not be able to submit your final report by the due date. We can usually extend the report deadline so that you have time to finish your work.

Do I have to create an account to submit an Interest Form?

Yes. An account is required to apply for a grant. The account also allows you to save and return to your Interest Form or Proposal. If your organization is awarded a grant, you will also submit grant reports via the online account.

If our organization does not yet have a 501(c)(3) public charity determination from the IRS, but has applied for one, can we apply for a grant from Meyer?

Yes, you may apply. If you are invited to submit a proposal, we will conduct additional due diligence to ensure that our grant funds are spent for charitable purposes.

Our organization operates under a fiscal sponsor. May we apply for a grant?

Yes. Groups with fiscal sponsor arrangements may apply for funding. Please include the fiscal sponsor information when you submit your Interest Form. We may ask for additional documentation if you are invited to submit a proposal.

 

If I have questions about the Meyer Foundation’s proposal while I am completing it, what is the best way to have those questions answered?

You can ask your questions directly in the proposal through our GivingData technology platform and a Meyer staff person will reply in a timely fashion. You can also email us with your questions at apply@meyerfdn.org or call us at (202) 483-8294.

Can I submit more than one Interest Form per year?

No. Meyer accepts only one per year, per organization.

My organization received a grant from Meyer in 2019. Do we need to submit an Interest Form if we want to apply for a grant in 2020?

Yes. All organizations applying to Meyer for an operating or program grant, including current and long-time grantee partners, need to submit an Interest Form.

Do you have any guidance on working in the Meyer grantee portal?

We hope you’ll find our portal to be intuitive. However, if you need guidance, we’ve developed some quick guides you can access here.

I’d like to discuss my organization’s work with a Partnerships and Strategy Director before submitting an Interest Form. Can I do that?

Meyer’s Partnerships and Strategy Directors try to be accessible, transparent, and present in their respective communities. They will be happy to talk with you, however; for new applicants, the Interest Form is designed to be the first step in starting that conversation. If you have specific questions about the Interest Form itself, send them to us at apply@meyerfdn.org or call is at (202) 483-8294. If we have additional questions or need additional information about your organization or project after reading your Interest Form, someone from Meyer will be in touch with you.

Does Meyer make capital grants?

Meyer makes a limited number of capital grants to organizations that are strongly aligned with our racial equity goals.

Does Meyer make multi-year grants?

Yes. Organizations that are good candidates for multi-year support (usually three years) will employ a systems approach to work that aligns with our goals in housing, education, and economic well-being. To learn more about the organizations we are especially interested in supporting, review our Grants Guide.

My organization received a grant in 2019. When should we apply again?

If your organization received a grant from Meyer in June 2019 and wants to apply again in 2020, we suggest – but do not require – that you submit a request in the first half of 2020; if you received a grant in October of 2019, we suggest you submit a request in the second half of 2020. This suggestion isn’t a hard-and-fast rule and, if it makes more sense to submit at another time, you should do that. If you have any questions about the timing of your submission, please contact your Partnerships and Strategy Director.

I have not received a Meyer grant recently (or I have never received a Meyer grant). Is there a “best time” to apply?

We accept Interest Forms throughout the year and make grants four times a year. You should apply when it makes the most sense for your organization, which may depend on when your fiscal year begins and ends, what your fundraising plan is, and when your staff is able to submit the request.

When does Meyer award grants?

We award grants in April, July, September, and November.

What are the deadlines to apply for a grant from Meyer?

There are no deadlines to apply for a grant. We accept and review Interest Forms – a short form in which applicants briefly describe their work to us – throughout the year.

How can I learn more about what kind of work Meyer supports and what it is looking for in grantee partners?

Our new Grants Guide includes everything you need to know about our grantmaking. This comprehensive guide consolidates information about our grantmaking and application process that in the past appeared in different parts of our website. It includes details about our goals and funding priorities, what we look for in grantee partners, what information we ask you to submit when you apply (and why we ask you to submit it), and how we evaluate funding requests.

What should we do if we can’t meet the deadline for submitting our final report?

While submission of a final report is an important part of the grant process, we can almost always be flexible with the actual due date. Please contact Meyer’s Grants Director or your Partnerships and Strategy Director if you wish to discuss a different submission date for your final report.

How do we report on our grant?

Your award letter will include reporting guidelines for required narrative and financial reports. Reports are typically due at the end of the grant term. Sharing your achievements, challenges, and lessons learned at the end of a grant year is an important way to enhance the joint learning and partnership between your organization and the Meyer Foundation. All reports should be submitted online by logging into your account in our portal.

If awarded, when and how will we receive the grant?

Along with an award letter and final report guidelines, grant checks are mailed to the attention of the CEO at the organization’s main address. Award letters are mailed out approximately two weeks after the funding is approved.

May we submit an application for a capacity-building grant or capital campaign grant if we have an active operating support grant?

Yes, an organization may apply for a capacity-building grant or capital campaign grant when already receiving funding through a regular grant. In fact, our capacity-building grants are only available to groups that have recently received operating or program support grants.

Our organization works in more than one jurisdiction. Who will be our program director?

You will work with the Partnerships and Strategy Director for the part of the region – DC, Maryland, or Virginia – where the majority of your work is focused.

How do I know who our Partnerships and Strategy Director is?

Meyer Partnerships and Strategy Directors are organized by geography.

What if my organization does not currently have a federal tax ID number?

An organization must have public charity status or a fiscal sponsor to receive a grant from the Meyer Foundation. You can submit an Interest Form without a tax identification number and if your idea moves forward, we will discuss this in more detail with you.

If we have completed the common grant application, may we submit it instead of the online application?

No, the Meyer Foundation does not accept the common grant application.

We are a national or statewide organization that has a program in the Greater Washington region. May we apply for a grant?

Meyer is committed to growing local leadership. Most of the organizations the Foundation supports are based in and work in the Greater Washington region. If your national or statewide organization runs a program or project in close partnership with local communities or organizations, you could submit a project request for the part of your work that is strongly aligned with Meyer’s goals and priorities, takes place in the Greater Washington region, and is done in close partnership with local community members.

Should we apply for general operating or project support?

Meyer’s primary grantmaking strategy is to provide general operating support to organizations focused on making systems in housing, education, and/or economic well-being more equitable and inclusive. We may award a small number of project-specific grants in circumstances in which a particular project aligns with Meyer’s goals, but the overall work of the organization does not.

How much funding should we ask for?

Our grants range from $10,000 to $60,000 and sometimes higher. Currently, the median operating grant is $40,000.
