Grant Application Procedures


The Healthcare Foundation of Northern Lake County will make grants only to tax-exempt nonprofit organizations and will rarely fund organizations outside Lake County. We give priority to specific programs rather than to general operating support. Grants will typically range from $25,000 to $100,000.

The foundation considers grant requests two times per year. Please see Submission Dates and Board Meetings section below for information about the foundation’s ongoing annual grant cycles.

How to Apply

Letters of Inquiry must be submitted prior to a full proposal. Letters of Inquiry and proposals must be submitted online and are due by 5:00 p.m. on the dates listed below. Hard copies or emailed letters of intent and proposals will not be accepted.

Based upon review of the Letter of Inquiry, you may be invited to submit online a proposal.
