Apply for a Grant

The Imago Dei Fund considers grant requests, by invitation only, in two steps: Inquiry and Application. Both are submitted online via the IDF Grant Management System (see instructions below).

Existing Grantees

For organizations that are current grant recipients, your final follow-up report also serves as an inquiry for possible subsequent funding. You will be contacted with further instructions if selected to re-apply. We consider grant renewal requests on a rolling basis; remaining application deadlines in 2016 are October 12 and November 11.

Prospective Grantees

IDF adds a handful of new, highly aligned partners to our granting portfolio each year. We consider a cohort of prospective partners twice per year (spring and fall). A group of prospective organizations are first invited to submit inquires. Based on our strategy, priorities, and alignment, some of these organizations are then invited to submit a full proposal. The inquiry process for 2016 is completed; invitations going forward will be for the Spring of 2017.

Keep the Spark Alive

The “Keep the Spark Alive” Fund is designed to support our grantee partners’ efforts in nurturing the inner lives of their staff.  Current IDF grantees are eligible to apply for this grant, which is awarded above and beyond current grant funding.

Applications should be submitted via the Grant Management System. No access code is required, but only current active grantees are eligible for this grant.

Submit a Follow-up Report

When a grant has been awarded, we ask for periodic follow-up reports to be submitted. They should be submitted online via the IDF grant management system (see instructions below). The Grant Agreement submitted upon acceptance of a grant indicates agreed upon dates for follow-up reporting; grantees also receive an automated email reminder three weeks prior to report due date(s). If the timing of an assigned report becomes inconvenient, feel free to reach out to your primary contact at IDF to discuss alternatives.
