Grants Application Process

Invited Proposals

Staff contacted organizations to invite a grant proposal that is due in September for the annual Northern Virginia grants cycle. Please note that the Claude Moore Scholars application process takes place separately in February. See Guidelines for Requested Proposals below. If your organization was not contacted, we are unable to fund your organization at this time.


If your organization has been invited to submit a proposal for funding consideration by the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, please prepare and submit your grant proposal following the online application instructions in the email you received. We continue to use the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers Common Grant Application. For your reference on content requested, see the application form below.


Submit your proposal via the online application by September 1, 2021. Applicants will receive an email acknowledging receipt of their grant application.
