The Foundation provides grants promoting peace and respect for diversity to publicly funded, non-profit 501 (c)(3) organizations based in the US for project support, organizational operating costs and capacity building. The duration of most grants is one year.  

All EHF grant giving is managed through an annual, two-stage application process. The first stage includes submission of a short “Letter of Intent” (LOI) by interested grant applicants.  After review by the EHF staff and Board, a limited number of applicants will be invited to submit full grant proposals.

In 2015, the Foundation will accept LOI proposals on the selected topics outlined below in the section 2015 Grant Focal Areas. LOI proposals on these topics can be submitted through the online application form between May 1 to June 25.   Final applicants receive notification of grant awards in December 2015, with funding beginning in January 2016.  The El-Hibri Foundation does not award discretionary (out of cycle) or interim grants.
