General Operating Grant

Our Primary Grant Cycle

The IWF General Grant cycle is open to proposals up to $10,000. These funds are to be used for General Operating support. We will not be evaluating applications on a project basis, but rather an overall organization basis. Consideration will be given to the St. Louis region including St. Louis City, St. Louis County and East St. Louis.
