Compassionate Impact Grant Program

What is the Compassionate Impact Grant?

Foundation Beyond Belief usually chooses four beneficiaries to receive grants each quarter, but one quarter a year we feature a single, game-changing grant for one innovative organization. This grant is called the Compassionate Impact Grant (CIG).

The CIG program supports organizations with social initiatives that are:

  • innovative,
  • transformative,
  • evidence-based,
  • and solving community problems.

The Compassionate Impact Grant Program is an open, competitive process. More information will be available in 2018 for the new round of Letter of Intents.

2017 Compassionate Impact Grant

The Compassionate Impact Grant Program is an open, competitive process. The Letter of Intent Period opened on January 2, 2017 and closed  on February 23, 2017. 

The RFP portion of the application is open to INVITEES ONLY.

Please review the Request For Proposal and the Budget Form thoroughly.
