Instructions for Applying

Instructions for LOI

Any organization may submit a Letter of Intent (LOI).

For consideration in the Spring Round:
– LOIs are due the first Friday in January (if the first Friday is a holiday then the due date is moved to the following Monday).
– Invitations for full proposals will be offered in March.
– Full proposals are due in April (specific date is communicated in proposal invitations).
– Decisions will be made by June 30.

For consideration in the Fall Round:
– LOIs are due the first Friday in July (if the first Friday is a holiday then the due date is moved to the following Monday).
– Invitations for full proposals will be offered in August.
– Full proposals will be due in early October (specific date is communicated in proposal invitations).
– Decisions will be made by December 31.

The Corina Higginson Trust has moved to a new web-based proposal submission process. To apply, please visit:

https://cht-grants.smapply.io/

You’ll be asked to create a profile in our new system. After creating your profile, you’ll receive another email inviting you to complete your registration in our system. The email will come from: noreply@smapply.io so please check your spam folder. 

The online LOI application is very similar to the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers’ format that we’ve used for years. Hopefully it will feel familiar to you.

As usual, please pay particular attention to the Trust’s stated purpose, and target audience when preparing your application – keeping in mind that the trust does not fund scholarship or brick and mortar projects. The Trust rarely funds at levels higher than $5,000. You can submit a request for more, but I’d strongly suggest that your project be “scalable” in that case, so that it’s clear to the Trustees that a smaller grant would still be meaningful. 

If you have any questions or have trouble accessing our new system, please email info@corinahigginsontrust.org. We’ll be providing support for you during this application round, as always, so please let us know if you need assistance.
