When can I apply for a grant?
Organizations can apply during our open cycles in the Spring (January 1-February 1) and Fall (July 1-August 1).
Note: Regardless of the result of your application, one year must elapse before applying again.
What is the recommended browser for the application?
We recommend using either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox when applying.
If you receive a message saying that the application is not available, please switch to one of the recommended browsers and try again. If you are already using either Chrome or Firefox and you receive the message, please refresh the page and try again. This should resolve the issue for you. If it does not, please contact us.
What if I forgot my password?
- Click "Forgot Password?" beneath the password field
- Enter your email address in the provided field
- Click "Send Password"
If the email address you entered is in our database, you will receive an email containing a link and a temporary password
Note: The temporary password contains letters, numbers, and symbols. When entering it, do not include the period at the end!
What if I can longer access my email account?
The email account, and password, you use to access your Turrell Fund application is only used during the grant application windows, for saving and submitting your applications. It is not tied to our long-term records for your organization.
What this means to you: if you cannot access the email account you used to apply in the past, you can create a new account with a different email address.
Do I need to complete my application all at once?
No. You can use this link to “Return to Your Existing Application” and enter your login information.
What do we look for in an application?
- Clarity of your responses
- Fit with our stated Vision and Mission
- Innovation, or uniqueness, of your organization or project
For more information, please review Application Guidelines / What We're Looking For above.
Note: Even for organizations which we have known and funded for many years, our funding decisions will be based entirely on the information which you present in your application. Each proposal will be read by all of our Trustees.
