Grant Application: Rapid Response

Thank you for your interest in applying to the James R. and Anita Horne Jenkins Family Foundation. This year, however, the board has decided not to have an open round of grant applications. We will, instead, focus solely on board-initiated outreach, as well as the critical review and revision of our overall grantmaking strategies. We remain receptive to urgent letters of inquiry, as outlined in our website’s FAQ, but we strongly encourage most organizations to simply return to our site again next year (2017) when the new round of open applications begins, likely in August.

If your organization previously received a grant from us and kept us up-to-date with your activities, you may be considered for board-initiated outreach, but we cannot guarantee repeat grants. Please consider this a good year to share your compelling work with new funders. We surely support you in spirit, but can only manage so much at once from a logistical and financial standpoint.

If you would like to be added to our email announcements list (less than five emails per year), please send your organization’s name and preferred contact information to info [at] jenkinsstandinthegap [dot] org with the subject line “Subscribe to List.”

While planning for next year’s grant cycle, please review our extensive FAQ page, as well as other sections of our recently updated site. If you still have any remaining questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Please address all letters to the Board of Directors.

We wish you the best of luck in your ongoing funding search and hope your community outreach continues to be effective, informative, and uplifting.

Board of Directors
James R. & Anita Horne Jenkins Family Foundation
