The Robert H. Spitz Foundation Announces 2020 Grant Cycle

The Robert H. Spitz Foundation, administered by the Scranton Area Community Foundation, is pleased to announce its 2020 grant cycle and invites local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to apply for grant funding.

The grant application process is streamlined through an online grant management portal administered by the Scranton Area Community Foundation. The grant application process begins with submitting a Letter of Intent (LOI) through the online portal.

To submit an LOI, you will need to first create an account in the online grant management portal. All applicants are required to create an account. [Please note: your LOI/grant application can be saved as a draft, and when you log on again it’s easy to return to that draft, make edits, and submit the application when you’re ready to do so.]

All submitted LOIs will be reviewed and select organizations will be invited to submit a full grant application through the online portal before the grant application deadline. If invited to submit a full grant application, the application will be due by Wednesday, June 1, 2020.
