How to Apply

The Strachan Foundation has currently reached its maximum capacity. We are no longer accepting new proposals until further notice. Thanks for your interest. 

Please review our Guiding Philosophy and Values and our Selection Criteria to determine whether you meet the foundation’s criteria to receive a grant.


Send a letter of inquiry to our Executive Director. Letters must be received at the latest 2 weeks before the proposal deadlines mentioned below in order to send a proposal by the closest deadline.

If we feel there is a match between your proposal and the Strachan Foundation’s criteria and mission, our Executive Director will invite you to submit a proposal for a grant.


If requested by our executive director, submit a brief proposal for a grant using our guidelines. Please see Grant Guidelines for New Grantees*.

*Note: If you are a returning grantee you do not need to send a letter of inquiry. Please refer to Grant Guidelines for Returning Grantees

STEP 4: Our executive director will review and present your proposal to the board and will contact you with the Board’s decision in approximately three to four weeks.
