Grant Applications

The Concept Paper

Organizations may be asked to begin the application process by submitting a concept paper.


Applicants should submit succinct proposal narratives. Experience has taught us that proposals between 3 and 5 pages are effective. In no event should proposals exceed 12 pages. The narrative must include a full discussion of the proposed project, the project budget and the intended benefit. In addition to the proposal, applicants may include general background materials such as an informational annual report and brochures.

Required attachments include:

Completed applications should be submitted electronically. The trustees will not give grant consideration to organizations whose proposals are incomplete.


The trustees regularly meet three times a year, in late February, late spring, and early fall. Proposals are not normally considered out of cycle. The deadline for submittal of grant applications is June 1st. Grant applicants that have been accepted by the Archie Tonge Education Fund will be notified of the Archie Tonge Education Fund’s decision following the fall board meeting.
