Grant application review is now underway for 2019-2020 grants.

Please check back in January for any updates
to criteria for our 2020-2021 grants

 

2020 Letter of Inquiry (LOI) Process

WIN invites Nebraska nonprofit organizations and members of the University of Nebraska community to submit two-page Letters of Inquiry (LOI) describing their bold approaches to urgent and important problems by February 18. 

The WIN Grants Committee will review LOIs in March, and 12 to 16 organizations or programs will be invited to submit full grant proposals by April 23.

Letters of Inquiry for the 2019-2020 grant cycle
are due by Feb. 18, 2020.

LOI Tips:

  • In the narrative, be as clear and focused as possible about how your organization/project would make best use of a grant of $80,000 or more to positively impact Nebraska.
  • An email confirming receipt of your LOI will be sent within a week of submission. Submission of a letter does not guarantee formal consideration for funding. 
  • Selected Requests for Proposal (RFPs) will be sent by the end of March (due April 23), with awards being announced in the Fall of 2020 and funds being available for use by Dec. 31, 2020.
  • Proposals involving collaborative approaches to problem solving should originate with the lead organization serving as fiscal agent for management and utilization of funds.
  • Organizations that have received past WIN grants may submit LOIs after their grant period and all reporting is completed, and will be evaluated with the same criteria for innovation and bold problem-solving as other grant seekers.

  • Project name, primary contact name, e-mail and phone
