Application Procedure

The Gately FoundationThose seeking grants from The Gately Foundation should first review the grant guidelines to determine if their initiative and funding needs are consistent with the mission and interests of the Foundation.

Once you have determined your request falls within the established guidelines of The Gately Foundation, your initial contact with us is requested to be in the form of a letter of intent.

  2. Specific purpose for which funds are sought;
  3. Amount requested for one year, including the specific amount sought from The Gately Foundation;
  4. General statement about what the proposed program will achieve and how it comports with the Mission of The Gately Foundation;
  5. Anticipated length of time required to be successful in the endeavor sought to be financed, and
  6. List of other funding sources, if any, and whether confirmed or not confirmed.

If an initial affirmative response is given, The Gately Foundation will then request a full proposal.

All letters of intent must be submitted to the following email address

If you receive an affirmative response from The Gately Foundation after having submitted your initial Letter of Intent, you will be required to complete and submit the Grant Application.
