We only accept proposals from Lutheran churches and organizations or, in rare circumstances, proposals from non-Lutheran organizations that directly enable Lutheran ministries or projects.
Yes! Please complete and submit the form on the Apply Now page if you're a new potential grant recipient. Or, call the Foundation at 414.269.2832.
If you are unsure about portions of your proposal, you may contact the Foundation and ask staff to review this material. We can do this by viewing saved portions of your unsubmitted application, or you may email us the material you'd like reviewed. This review is only done when a special request is made; we do not typically preview applications before they are submitted.
An organization may have only one Siebert Lutheran Foundation grant working each year. However, in special circumstances, permission is given to submit a proposal for a new project or program. If you believe your organization's unique circumstances may warrant an additional grant, please contact Foundation staff to discuss the possibility.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 414.269.2832. Do not create a new profile or new login information unless you are certain a profile does not already exist for your organization.
Yes, you may call, and we hope to be able to answer your questions in order to help your organization grow. However, the Foundation does reserve the right to not explain grant decisions, or to limit explanations, when staff believes it is most appropriate to do so.
The Board will not immediately reconsider a grant it has turned down, but if your organization's circumstances have changed and you feel resubmission would be beneficial, you may contact Foundation staff and ask permission to apply again in the next grant cycle.
