At the most recent meeting of the Foundation, the board of directors voted to change its funding process.
In 2023, there will only be 2 funding cycles. The portal for the first funding cycle has opened. Applications will be due on February 3, 2023, and subsequently, awards will not be made until April. The timing for the 2nd cycle will change as well.
Watch the website for updated information or future deadlines. Please direct any questions to Tammy@FischFoundation.org.
Please note that the application portal is closed for several weeks after each deadline to allow for administrative maintenance. If you are unable to access the application, please try again within the two-month period prior to the deadline.
The Foundation Directors have the responsibility for the final approval of each grant. Since the Foundation receives funding requests far in excess of its ability to fund, not all requests can be approved. A decision not to fund a proposal does not reflect on the merits of the applicant or the value of the proposal.
