This proposal takes longer than it looks. Plan enough time.

I'm not sure they're actually open to new grantees, though they do have an LOI process. It seems like they stick with their tried and true grantees every year.

We submitted a Letter of Inquiry to the Frey Foundation to help purchase equipment for our Special Needs Dental Care Project. They responded appropriately and in a timely matter.

Frey Foundation of Minnesota has made a lot of grants towards affordable housing.
The trustees spend the time to really look over proposals and come to the site visits with thoughtful questions (especially regarding financials – so be ready to explain your numbers).

This foundation has a deep commitment to the local community. They will thoroughly vet your proposal because they care so much about the programs they fund. Be prepared to answer detailed questions in the site visit.

Reviewer 515 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2017

New applicants must submit an LOI. Should connect with Foundation representative first. Focused on serving families. Online application. Multiple deadlines throughout the year, but for different program areas.
