Diane and Guilford Glazer Philanthropies funds 501(c)(3) organizations within our focus areas. We do not accept unsolicited grant applications and do not fund individuals, capital campaigns, legislation, annual giving, membership campaigns, special events, or fundraising events. We are unable to accept inquiries through the mail or by phone. We regret that, given the volume of inquiries, we are unable to respond to each letter individually.

We will accept letters of inquiry on a rolling basis. If we determine from your letter of inquiry that your request is consistent with our priorities and interests, you will be invited to submit a full application. Applications must be received by the deadlines listed below to be considered for our quarterly grant cycles. *Please note that we now accept applications for each of our focus areas at each application deadline. 

If you believe that your organization and program(s) are a fit with the priorities of one or more of the Glazer Philanthropies, please click the link to submit a letter of inquiry. Letters of inquiry must be submitted in order to receive an invitation to complete a full application. The deadlines below are for the full application, not the letter of inquiry. Please allow yourself enough time between submission of the letter of inquiry and the application deadline to ensure that the full application is completed on time.
