Initial Contact: Letter of Inquiry

 

 


No unsolicited proposals will be considered. However, interested organizations may submit a ONE-PAGE Letter of Inquiry for the Foundation to consider. We will not accept faxed or emailed letters of inquiry, or inquiries that arrive after the application deadline. In the letter, the Executive Director of the organization should provide:

  • the amount of money you seek from Horizon Foundation and the period of time over which you seek it
  • the other sources of financing you already have or intend to explore
  • in which county or counties where Horizon provides funding will the project will take place
  • contact information, including email address and website. We will respond to your inquiry via email and require a current address to do so.
