George Gund Foundation

The George Gund Foundation encourages inquiries about the application of their funding guidelines to specific ideas in advance of the submission of formal proposals. Foundation staff welcome the opportunity to provide guidance, suggest alternatives and recommend partners.

Proposals should be addressed to:

The George Gund Foundation
1845 Guildhall Building
45 Prospect Avenue West
Cleveland, Ohio 44115
Telephone: (216) 241-3114

Proposals are considered by the Foundation’s Trustees in March, June, September and December. Deadlines for submitting proposals for consideration at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Trustees are July 16, November 15 and March 15. Proposals are due the next business day if a deadline falls on a weekend.

All proposals must include a climate change statement, a brief explanation of what the organization is doing or considering to reduce or to eliminate its impact on climate change. The Foundation’s website includes resources to assist grantees with this task. In this same spirit, they ask that organizations do not submit proposals in notebooks, binders or plastic folders and print proposals on both sides of each sheet of paper.

All proposals are screened and evaluated by the staff before presentation at Trustee Meetings. Receipt of proposals will be acknowledged by mail.
