The CTA Foundation staff does extensive research on potential programs that meet the mission and vision of the Foundation. After identifying potential partners, we may request proposals from those organizations. The CTA Foundation Board of Trustees makes the final selection of proposals to support.
Organizations that fit our mission can contact us to submit information about their programs and request an invite for the next round of submission. However please recognize that due to limited staff and resources, the CTA Foundation limits the number of submissions each round.
The CTA Foundation sees its grants as part of a partnership and works closely with our grantees to ensure the program's success. Programs that receive grants from the CTA Foundation are required to submit reports outlining the impact that the program has had toward our mission. We take these metrics into consideration when evaluating future funding requests.
The organizations we support are eligible tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations as defined by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
