The GrantMaking Process

Program staff review every submission and will notify applicants if their plans fit within current program guidelines. Please only inquire as to the status of your request if more than three months have passed. While we do not accept declined proposals for re-evaluation, we welcome subsequent letters of inquiry.

If a project is accepted for grant consideration, staff members will ask for additional information which may include a detailed proposal or a meeting with the principal organizers of the project.

Grants are awarded by the Tiffany & Co. Foundation board of directors, who meet twice annually.


The Tiffany & Co. Foundation is no longer accepting applications for its Urban Parks Program. For over a decade, the Foundation has supported the enhancement of urban environments through revitalization and creation of green spaces in the United States and abroad. While we are proud of this grantmaking legacy, the Foundation’s board has elected to retire The Tiffany & Co. Foundation’s Urban Parks Program and focus our resources to advance the Foundation’s Responsible Mining and Coral Conservation programs.
