Temporary Closure of Grant Application Portal
We wanted to take a moment to provide an important update regarding our grant application process. At the Ray and Tye Noorda Foundation, we are committed to supporting impactful initiatives and organizations aligned with our mission. However, due to the volume of renewal applications we are anticipating in 2024, we have made the decision to temporarily close our grant application portal to new applicants.
This temporary portal closure is aimed at allowing our team to support our existing partners and avoid wasting applicants' time. Our goal is to ensure that each proposal receives the attention and consideration it deserves.
We understand the significance of the work being done by organizations around the world. Rest assured, our commitment to supporting meaningful projects remains steadfast. While we are pausing review of new applicants, we will continue to support our existing partners.
At this time, we expect the portal to be closed to new applicants through the end of 2024, but will send an update to our website subsribers in Fall of 2024 (you can subscribe for RTNF updates here). During this period, we encourage prospective applicants to stay tuned for updates regarding the reopening of our grant application portal.
A note for organizations that have already created an application for 2024 -- You will still able to complete and submit the application you started (should you choose to); but no new applications can be created. We will review each application with care and maintain a list of promising programs identified in this application cycle to stay in touch with for the time when we are able to review new opportunities again.
We deeply appreciate the dedication and passion exhibited by all those striving to make a positive difference in their communities and beyond. Your contributions are invaluable, and we are honored to be a part of the journey toward creating a better future for all.
Thank you for your understanding.
