Impact1890 utilizes a standard due-diligence process to assess the qualifications of each proposal. Staff review every proposal to ensure the basic requirements are met—geographic location of program/project, tax status of organization, and purpose of proposal is to serve older adults. The Board may also ask Impact1890 staff to provide preliminary funding recommendations.

The proposal form opens in June and is due at the end of July. Announcements of whether a proposal is funded and, if so, at what amount are shared via e-mail in November. Learn more about the grant cycle here.
