How To Apply

Application Process

The Joyce Foundation accepts grant inquiries online throughout the year. Applicants should anticipate the application process to take approximately four to six months from the initial submission of the letter of inquiry to the receipt of funding.

The Foundation uses an online grants management system called Fluxx. First-time applicants must create an account and submit it for approval. If you need help logging in, please review the How to Log In Reference Sheet.

Additional Information


Grant proposals are considered at meetings of the Foundation’s Board of Directors in April, July, and December. Applicants are strongly encouraged to plan their application and proposal submission process for the April or July meetings, since most grant funds will be distributed at those times.
