GSF’s approach to grantmaking has deep roots in the foundation’s original policies. In 1946, the founder encouraged us to “…Pioneer new fields, where support from other sources is not readily available, and where the possibility of major gains exists, but also complete losses.” He understood the importance of experimenting, and of being patient enough to move through problems that arise.
HOW TO APPLY
GSF makes grants twice per year, in the spring and fall. As a small foundation with limited resources, we prioritize multi-year grants to our long-term partners.
GSF has allocated its grants through 2019 and will not be taking on any new grants through open intake. We will reopen this process in 2020 if new funds are available. We thank you for your interest and for the important work you are engaged in and regret that we cannot offer support at this time.
