The Mike & Mary Terry Family Foundation grant application process is by invitation only. However, the Foundation does accept one-page Letters of Inquiry (LOI) in two cycles towards our Catholic Education, Education, Homeless, and Victims of Abuse focus areas.
Deadline #1: May 1
Deadline #2: November 1
Upon the conclusion of the deadlines listed above, the Foundation will provide confirmation that your Letter of Inquiry has been received. After all inquiries have been reviewed, we will invite selected organizations to complete the full application process.
Letters of Inquiry are designed to be a general introduction to an organization and/or an update on a specific program. The Foundation will conduct comprehensive due diligence, if your organization is invited to complete a full grant application.
Prior to submitting a Letter of Inquiry, please review our Grant Guidelines for further detail regarding the submission process and frequently asked questions.
All letters of inquiry and applications must be submitted electronically by 5:00 p.m. CT on the deadline.
