Apply for a Grant

The Foundation now offers organizations two options for submitting grant proposals: online or by mail. The online application link can be accessed on the right side of this page, and the printed application option is directly below it (please use only one of these methods to avoid any confusion).

Before using the online application portal, please make sure that you have submitted a brief one-page summary of a proposed project or grant request.  This one page summary should include: a brief description of your organization, an overview of the project, how it addresses a community need, and the project timeline, budget and anticipated outcomes.  The one page summary should be submitted via email to Amy Nye at

The Allyn Family Foundation will review the submission and follow up on next steps, which may include a phone call, meeting with Foundation staff and/or invitation to submit a full application online. 

​Our online application portal reduces paper waste and streamlines the proposal process. If there are any questions about the online application process, please feel free to reference our Online Application FAQ or contact our office.


Please only use the "New Application" link when initially setting up your online account or creating a new application. For all further access to your saved and submitted applications, select the "Returning Applicant" link. 

​Even if your organization has received funding from the Allyn Family Foundation previously, you will still need to create an account in order to submit a proposal online. Only proposals submitted online will be available for your future reference and viewing. If you are a returning online applicant, please do not create a new account or you will not be able to view your previous grant proposals (see Online Application FAQ). 

​All proposals submitted for consideration must be completed through the Foundation's Online Application portal or using the printable Grant Application form.

Printed applications can be submitted to:
