Getting Started
In 2015, the Tillotson Fund will launch an online grants portal for applications. This system will make it easier for you to apply, keep your contact information current and track previous applications.

Step 1: Logging In

Organizations will need a username and password to access the GrantSource@NHCF. Only one account will be permitted per organization. Please use the email address of your executive director/primary organization contact to set up the account.

If you are a consultant applying on behalf of an organization, please contact the organization you represent as you will need to login with that organization's account information.

If you are unsure if your organization has been assigned an account, please contact Jean Clarke at 800-464-6641 ext. 20238.

Step 2: Complete an Organization Profile

The profile is where you fill out basic information about your organization. (This replaces our former application cover sheet and is also a resource for Foundation staff to share organization information with donors.)

If your organization created an account prior to this application cycle, please check it again for correctness and completeness.

How to Apply
Before you apply, keep in mind that organizations can only receive one grant (small or large) per year from the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund. For more information on the goals and priorities of the Fund, proposal review criteria, what to expect after you apply, and other details, please refer back to the Before You Apply page and the quick links section.

Small Grant
$20,000 or less

Complete your organization profile. Once complete, you will be able to view available applications. To apply, select Small Grant from the drop down menu and you will be directed to the Small Grant application. Small grants may not be used for unrestricted operating expenses.

Please note: We may share Small Grant applications, or organization profiles, with additional donors or others to inform them of your work.

Large Grants
More than $20,000 and up to $100,000 per year; multi-year grants up to $100,000 per year; up to 3 years and $300,000

In an effort to streamline the application process, we have implemented a concept paper as the first step in applying for a Large Grant. A concept paper is a brief application designed to save you time.

Please note: We may share concept papers, or organizational profiles, with additional donors or others to inform them of your work.

You will be notified via postal mail if your concept paper is declined. If your concept paper has been accepted, you will be notified via a phone call with instructions on how to access the full application.

Please note: Being invited to submit a full application does not guarantee funding. We will invite more applications than we can fund.
