Share |

As a membership organization, we are pleased to provide Requests for Proposals, or "RFP"'s from our members to the broader community.

latest requests for proposals:


1. The Horizon Foundation 2017 Strategic Health Initiative

The Foundation is currently accepting proposals from nonprofit and public entities serving Howard County, Maryland, for its Strategic Health Initiative Grants funding cycle. The Foundation will consider requests of $50,000-150,000 a year for up to two years. Funding amounts and the number of awards will vary depending on the quality of the applications the Foundation receives. The deadline to submit the application is October 20, 2017.  


2. Fund for Shared Insight Listen for Good Grants

Listen for Good (L4G) is an initiative dedicated to building the practice of listening to the people we seek to help. We invite nonprofits and funders to join us in exploring a simple but systematic and rigorous way of getting feedback from the people at the heart of our work. L4G is focused on applying a semi-standard survey instrument, which includes using the Net Promoter System (NPS®) employed widely in customer feedback circles, to the nonprofit beneficiary context. Organizations implementing L4G are all customer-facing nonprofits. In 2016, we made 46 L4G grants supported by 28 nominating co-funders. In 2017, they plan to make up to 75 new L4G grants. A nonprofit must be nominated by a current funder. Applications will be accepted until October 13, 2017.
