CFWC will accept and review letters of inquiry that may fall within or outside of our funding priorities.
After you've created an organizational profile on the online grants portal, select "Community Foundation of Westmoreland County LOI."
The letter of inquiry consists of two short sections about your request for funding and your organization. which must be completed in the online portal before submission. You will also be asked to provide budgetary information, a program or project overview and a timeline. After your letter of inquiry is submitted, you will receive an email confirmation.
Within six weeks, you will be notified of the status of your request. If our staff determines that your inquiry is in line with the grant requirements, we will contact your organization to discuss your proposal in detail to gather more information. Your organization will be given next steps to fund your project, or will be provided with feedback and direction for future funding opportunities.
To submit a letter of inquiry, your organization must have an organizational profile.
