How To Apply

Nice to be liked

Welcome to the "How to Apply" page. The E.L. and Z. Irene Hopkins Foundation is now taking grant requests. Please read below for more details about how to submit a grant request.

We have tried to make the application process as simple and expeditious as possible. The first step is to review our Mission and Grant Guidelines to find out if your organization or program is a fit for our qualifications.

Second, if you believe your organization or program satisfies our qualifications, you should then submit a complete application for consideration.

Once you are selected as a recipient of an E.L. and Z. Irene Hopkins Foundation grant, the terms of the grant will be formalized in a Contract. The Contract will include a reporting schedule that you must follow in order to receive funding.

A preliminary letter of inquiry is not required, but if you have questions concerning your particular qualifications and want to submit a letter of inquiry prior to preparing an application, you may do so. Any letter of inquiry should include a summary of your program and the impact it could have on the people served. After reviewing the letter, the Foundation staff can assess whether or not you should continue the application process based upon your qualifications. The application should be emailed to:
