How do I apply?
All applications must be submitted via our secure online application process. You will need to create a username and password to apply. Please review our eligibility criteria, effective Q3 2017, before applying.
The Healing Trust is temporarily pausing the acceptance of applications from organizations that have not received a grant from The Healing Trust after January 1, 2014. The pause will be in effect from Q3 2017 through Q2 2018. We will reconsider accepting new applicants in Q2 of 2018 and will provide any updates to our grantmaking via email and on our website. Please join our mailing list to receive notifications about changes to our grantmaking.
Grant proposals will be accepted and reviewed on a quarterly basis. Applicants are allowed to apply only twice per year (i.e., if an applicant is not awarded a grant the first time that they apply, they may make one more application attempt within a 12 month period.) Applicants cannot have more than one Transom grant concurrently or a Transom and an Operating Grant concurrently. All proposals are due by 4 PM on the day of the deadline. The Operating Grant application does not require a preliminary application and is due on the Full Proposal deadline of each quarter.

Transom, Cultures of Compassion, Sabbatical, and Advocacy grants require a short Preliminary Application. This application has three parts:
- Organization Information
- Contact Information
- Brief Project Description and Program Design
After we receive the Preliminary Application, we will email you to schedule a meeting with a member of our Program Team. Please note that Operating Grants and Small Grants do not have a preliminary application.
During our meeting, we will discuss your proposal’s fit with our current priorities. If the project/program is a good fit, we will request that you submit a Full Proposal and provide you with a link to the application. Full proposals will also be submitted via our secure online application process. Please only include materials requested by the Trust. Applicants must have a completed profile on GivingMatters™ by the full proposal deadline.
