Grantmaking

We partner with organizations and projects that build the power of communities to reimagine, recreate, and reform systems in the pursuit of racial and economic justice.

Grantmaking Toward a Just & Equitable COVID-19 Recovery

COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted Black, Indigenous, immigrant, Latinx, and other communities of color. As we anticipate the end of the pandemic, we know that recovering and rebuilding from COVID-19 does not and should not mean returning to a pre-pandemic “normal.” Instead, we seek a new normal – rooted in equity, justice, and our shared humanity – that helps build a more racially just society where everyone in our region can thrive. For this reason, our core grantmaking in 2022 is focused on supporting work that seeks a Just & Equitable COVID-19 Recovery.

Eligibility

To apply for a grant from the Meyer Foundation, applicants should:

    • Be a nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) public charity designation by the IRS (or be fiscally sponsored by one) and

    • Work with and for the people and communities of the Greater Washington region, which Meyer defines as:
      • Washington, DC
      • Montgomery and/or Prince George’s counties in Maryland
      • Arlington, Fairfax, and/or Prince William counties and/or the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and/or Manassas Park in Virginia


Most of the organizations Meyer supports are locally based and carry out their work in the Greater Washington region. National or statewide organizations may apply for a project grant if the work is strongly aligned with Meyer’s strategy and priorities, takes place in the Greater Washington region, and is implemented in close partnership with local communities and organizations.

If your organization is not yet a 501(c)(3) or does not yet have a fiscal sponsor, you are welcome to apply while you are securing that designation or in the process of finding a fiscal sponsor. However, grants can only be made to verified public charities (which means that you will need to have 501(c)(3) designation or a fiscal sponsor before we can approve and pay a grant).

If you have questions, contact us at grants@meyerfdn.org.

What We Support

In addition to our eligibility requirements, organizations or projects seeking funding should:

  • Address the root causes of inequity through systems change work. We define systems change as challenging and changing the culture, policies, practices, and priorities that create and perpetuate inequities. These inequities have only been further exposed and exacerbated during the pandemic.

  • Build power for purposes of advancing racial and/or economic justice.

  • Leverage one or more of these tactics for change: 
    • Organizing & Base Building
    • Advocacy
    • Capacity Building
    • Coalition Building
    • Narrative Change

  • Actively participate in broader organizing, movement, and/or field-building work to advance racial and economic justice in the Greater Washington region.
Examples of Eligible Work

Examples of eligible work could include long-term efforts:

  • to develop leaders within communities of color and/or campaigns to protect renters and prevent evictions;

  • to protect the rights of workers disproportionately affected by the pandemic;

  • to support immigrants who have been excluded from government-sponsored COVID-19 relief efforts;

  • or, to expand access to health care and to COVID-19 vaccines.

We are interested in work that re-imagines community safety and policing and promotes community-based anti-violence initiatives. We will also consider support for ward- or neighborhood-based mutual aid efforts that combine services with political education and community organizing.

This list is not exhaustive. We may support other campaigns and projects not described above, as long as they contribute to an equitable and just COVID-19 recovery with a focus on systems change in Greater Washington.

Additional Info

What We Do Not Support

We generally do not support direct services unless those services fall into one or both of the following categories. We will consider support for:

  • Demonstration/pilot projects that model what a racially equitable system could look like and how such a system should operate, and are used to advocate for how systems can and should change.

  • Direct services that are rooted in your constituents' stated interests or needs, and/or that build or nurture the relationships with your constituents that are an essential part of your base and power building work.


The Meyer Foundation does not fund:

  • Capital for housing construction or development
  • Start-up and operating support for housing developers
  • Scholarships or financial assistance
  • Medical or scientific research
  • Programs that promote religious doctrine
  • Individual public, public charter, or private schools
  • Individuals (including scholarships and emergency assistance)
  • Parent Teacher Associations
  • Special events or conferences, except by invitation only
  • Endowments
  • Direct services (except in the above-described circumstances where these services are part of an advocacy or organizing agenda or strategy)

How to Apply

We encourage interested applicants to learn what drives our grantmaking by reading about our mission, strategy, and the bodies of work we prioritize. On our website you will also find a database of organizations we have funded in recent years.

The first step to applying is to submit a short Interest Form.The Interest Form helps us learn about your work and takes about 30 minutes to complete. There are no deadlines to submit Interest Forms: we accept and review them year-round. We’ll respond within 30 days of your Interest Form submission to let you know whether we will consider it for funding and invite you to submit a proposal.

If invited, you will have an opportunity to submit a proposal that helps us understand more deeply how your work aligns with our strategy and goals for a Just and Equitable COVID-19 Recovery.

Generally, we recommend that you apply when it makes the most sense for your organization, depending on when your fiscal year begins and ends, what your fundraising plan is, and when your staff is able to submit the request.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do we report on our grant?

Your award letter will include reporting language for required narrative and financial reports. Reports are typically due at the end of the grant term. Sharing your achievements, challenges, and lessons learned at the end of a grant year is an important way to enhance the joint learning and partnership between your organization and the Meyer Foundation. Some reports may take the form of a phone conversation. Any written reports can be submitted online by logging into your account in our portal.

Does Meyer make multi-year grants?

Yes. Organizations that are good candidates for multi-year support are those that are particularly well-aligned with our strategy. To learn more about the types of organizations we are especially interested in supporting, review our Grantmaking page on our website.

Should we apply for general operating or project support?

Meyer’s primary grantmaking strategy is to provide general operating support. We award project-specific grants in circumstances in which a particular project aligns with Meyer’s strategy but the overall work of the organization does not.

If we are awarded a grant, when and how will we receive it?

Grant agreements are emailed to the grantee partner organization’s CEO within 1-2 weeks of grant approval. Our payments are made electronically via bill.com upon receipt of the cosigned grant agreement.

How will we receive grant payment?

Meyer makes all payments via bill.com. Our grant proposal asks you to indicate a finance contact to manage connection to bill.com if a grant is approved. If your organization already uses bill.com, we ask for the last six digits of your Payment Network ID (PNI) in the proposal form. Groups using a fiscal sponsor should indicate a finance contact at the sponsoring organization for payment. If your organization is new to bill.com, this person will receive an email invitation from bill.com to connect to the system once the grant is approved. Payment is made promptly upon receipt of a cosigned grant agreement.

Our funding is not yet fully expended, but our grant report is now due. What should we do?

Please contact your Partnerships and Strategy Director if you believe you will not be able to submit your final report by the due date. We can usually extend the report deadline.

What should we do if we can’t meet the deadline for submitting our final report?

While submission of a final report is an important part of the grant process, we can almost always be flexible with the actual due date. Please contact your Partnerships and Strategy Director or email us at grants@meyerfdn.org if you wish to discuss a different submission date for your final report.

If you still have questions, please email us at grants@meyerfdn.org.

Do I have to create an account to submit an Interest Form?

Yes. An account is required to apply for a grant. The account also allows you to save and return to your Interest Form or Proposal. If your organization is awarded a grant, you will also submit grant reports via the online account.

Can I transfer my online account to a different staff member?

Yes. If you are no longer the point of contact for a request, you can transfer your account to a new person by emailing us at grants@meyerfdn.org. A Meyer staff person will assist you in transferring your account.

Are there any system requirements for using Meyer’s grantee portal?

There are no special system requirements for using our portal. You may use any browser. You may also use a mobile device.

Is Meyer accepting grant proposals for other work outside the Just & Equitable COVID-19 Recovery focus?

While Meyer has launched the Fund for Black-led Change and will convene around Reimagining the Social Contract, at this time Meyer’s core grantmaking is devoted solely to work toward a Just & Equitable COVID-19 Recovery.

What are the deadlines to apply for a grant from Meyer?

We review Interest Forms throughout the year on a rolling basis. To ensure your Interest Form is reviewed for a particular round of funding, see the dates in the How to Apply section of our Grantmaking page on our website.

When does Meyer award grants?

In 2022, we will award most grants in March, June, September, and November.

My organization received a grant in 2021. When should we apply again?

Meyer accepts and reviews Interest Forms on a rolling basis and will award most grants in March, June, September, and November. Generally, we recommend that you apply when it makes the most sense for your organization, depending on when your fiscal year begins and ends, what your fundraising plan is, and when your staff is able to submit the request.

How much funding should we ask for?

We encourage you to ask for the amount your organization needs. You won’t be penalized for asking for too much, but if you are invited to submit a proposal, your Partnerships and Strategy Director will discuss the size and length of the grant you should request in your proposal. You might find it helpful to refer to our database of recently awarded grants on our website.

Does Meyer make capital grants?

Meyer makes a limited number of capital grants to organizations that are strongly aligned with our strategy.

We are a national or statewide organization that has a program in the Greater Washington region. May we apply for a grant?

Meyer is committed to growing local leadership. Most of the organizations the Foundation supports are based in and work in the Greater Washington region. If your national or statewide organization runs a program or project in close partnership with local communities or organizations, you could submit a project request for the part of your work that is strongly aligned with Meyer’s funding strategy, takes place in the Greater Washington region, and is done in close partnership with local community members.

Can I submit more than one Interest Form per year?

No. Meyer accepts only one per year, per organization. If an organization is leading a coalition, it can also apply as the lead for that coalition in addition to applying for a grant to support your organization’s work.

How do I know who our Partnerships and Strategy Director is?

Meyer’s Partnerships and Strategy Directors are organized by geography:

Our organization works in more than one jurisdiction. Who will be our Partnerships and Strategy Director?

You will work with the Partnerships and Strategy Director for the part of the region – DC, Maryland, or Virginia – where the majority of your work is focused.

I’d like to discuss my organization’s work with a Partnerships and Strategy Director before submitting an Interest Form. Can I do that?

Meyer’s Partnerships and Strategy Directors try to be accessible, transparent, and present in their respective communities. They will be happy to talk with you; however, for new applicants, the Interest Form is designed to be the first step in starting that conversation. If you have specific questions about the Interest Form itself, send them to us at grants@meyerfdn.org. If we have additional questions or need additional information about your organization or project after reading your Interest Form, someone from Meyer will be in touch with you.

If I have questions about the Meyer Foundation’s proposal while I am completing it, what is the best way to have those questions answered?

You can ask your questions directly in the proposal through our GivingData technology platform and a Meyer staff person will reply in a timely fashion. You can also email us with your questions at grants@meyerfdn.org.

If we have completed the common grant application, may we submit it instead of the online application?

Meyer does not accept the common grant application in lieu of our Interest Form. If you are invited to submit a proposal, you may opt to submit a proposal written for another funder (including a common grant application) if it addresses all of the narrative questions on Meyer’s proposal.

Our organization operates under a fiscal sponsor. May we apply for a grant?

Yes. Groups with fiscal sponsor arrangements may apply for funding. Please include the fiscal sponsor information when you submit your Interest Form. We ask for additional documentation, including your current sponsorship agreement, if you are invited to submit a proposal.

If our organization does not yet have a 501(c)(3) public charity determination from the IRS, but has applied for one, can we apply for a grant from Meyer?

Yes, you may apply for funding while your determination is funded. However, to receive a grant, you will have to either have a 501(c)(3) determination or a fiscal sponsor. Meyer only awards grants to 501(c)(3) entities.

What if my organization does not currently have a federal tax ID number?

An organization must have public charity status or a fiscal sponsor to receive a grant from the Meyer Foundation. You can submit an Interest Form without a tax identification number and if your idea moves forward, we will discuss this in more detail with you.
