Can I submit additional materials with my letter of inquiry?
No, the letter of inquiry should be a brief introduction to your organization and a request for funding. Should the Foundation require additional materials, we’ll contact you directly.
What kinds of organizations do you fund?
Are your grants restricted to specific geographical regions?
We primarily fund programs within Massachusetts, but also provide grants to a limited number of organizations outside the state at the request of our trustees. We do not fund organizations based in countries outside the United States.
I have multiple programs for which I would like to submit a letter of inquiry. What do I do?
We request that you choose just one program within your organization to submit information on or, instead, submit a letter of inquiry requesting general operating support.
Can I check on the status of grant proposals online?
The Foundation will contact you directly to inform you of any updates to the status of your proposal.
Can I submit reports online?
Grant recipients required to submit an annual impact report (aka progress report or final report) will receive an email reminder when the submission period begins. They may then login to their account to submit the report.
How can I contact a Highland Street Foundation Trustee?
