At PMIEF, we are committed to continually improving how we partner with the community to support your critical work. For the fall 2023 cycle, the foundation will be operating with an invitation-only approach. In 2024, the foundation will be updating its grant grantmaking process with a goal to release more information about it in early 2024.
In the meantime, organizations are strongly encouraged to submit a brief letter of inquiry in advance of submitting a full grant application. After submission of the letter of inquiry, a PMIEF staff member will contact you, and if your organization appears to be a good match, we will invite you to submit a full grant application. Please email [email protected] with the subject: "Grant Application-Letter of Inquiry."
Letter of Inquiry/Concept Note

- professional development needs for staff in order to increase organizational efficiency;
