The Corina Higginson Trust is always working towards being more strategic in its grantmaking. When applying, pay particular attention to the Trust’s stated purpose and target audience. Typical grant awards are about $5,000 to $7,500. LOIs and proposals must be submitted via our online portal. The format generally follows the Common Grant Application outlined by the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers. The Trust does not fund scholarships or brick and mortar projects.
Any organization may submit a Letter of Intent (LOI).
The Corina Higginson Trust only accepts applications via its web-based proposal submission portal.
When applying, please pay particular attention to the Trust’s stated purpose, and target audience when preparing your application – keeping in mind that the trust does not fund scholarship or brick and mortar projects. The Trust rarely funds at levels higher than $7,500. You can submit a request for more, but we strongly suggest that your project be “scalable” in that case, so that it’s clear to the Trustees that a smaller grant would still be meaningful.
