Grant Inquiries‎ > ‎

Step 2: Gather the information needed for the application.

Hopefully, you've arrived here after using Step 1 to determine that your project is a suitable candidate for funding from the Swett Foundation. Great! We are looking forward to receiving your application! 

If you arrived here without going through Step 1, we suggest you consider using Step 1 to make sure that you do not spend time submitting an application that would not be a good match for the Swett Foundation and thus unlikely to be funded.

We suggest that you gather the information needed for your grant application prior to initiating your application. To fully evaluate your request and adequately compare it to other worthy requests, a substantial amount of information is required. As grant applications are submitted electronically we want to warn you  that, due to technological limitations, we DO NOT HAVE THE MEANS FOR YOU TO SAVE A PARTIALLY COMPLETED APPLICATION FORM AND RETURN TO IT LATER.  As only completed applications will be considered, we suggest you download the pdf version of this application from our website at the link below, collect your information, then return here when you have all the information readily available to you so you can easily cut and paste a lot of information into the application form. 
Please note:  We have just changed our form to allow large text boxes to hold 250 words instead of characters. However, be forewarned that large amounts of text throughout the application could surpass the ability of your internet browser to hold and transmit the final application. [Google Chrome and Firefox have been shown to be superior browsers over internet explorer when submitting the application].This is a problem beyond our control. Therefore, we suggest that you be concise and avoid using the full amount of space available for every text box. If your application does not go through, we regret that we will not be able to help you since it will be because you exceeded your browser limitations. Your only recourse will be to pare down and resubmit. While you may feel that you do not have room to supply all the information you want to initially, we have found that being concise works in the applicant's favor. A succinct description allows us to almost immediately recognize the unique benefits of the proposal. The trustee can then request additional information.
