How to Apply
Due to the high volume of applications, please note that the Foundation does not accept Letters of Inquiry or grant applications that are submitted on paper or via email and it does not take meeting requests.
Application and Grantmaking Process
The Tiffany & Co. Foundation program staff reviews Letters of Inquiry submissions on a rolling basis and will notify applicants within three months of inquiry.
If the proposed project is accepted for grant consideration, the Foundation staff members will request additional information from the applicants, which may include a full proposal or a meeting with the principal organizers of the project.
Following the review of a full proposal and associated due diligence, grants are awarded by The Tiffany & Co. Foundation board of directors.
Please only inquire as to the status of your request if more than three months have passed since the submission of the Letter of Inquiry. While the Foundation does not accept declined proposals for re-evaluation, we welcome subsequent Letters of Inquiry.
