The Portland Clinic Foundation grant cycle

The Portland Clinic Foundation grant cycle

It's that time of year again: The Portland Clinic Foundation's grant cycle is reopening! Last year, we gave $60,000 to 28 remarkable nonprofits. This year, we hope to give $70,000 in grants. Our grants range from $1,000-$5,000 and are unrestricted. Please spread the word to organizations that you think might be a good fit for us. 

If you're interested in applying for a grant, please be aware that we've refined our application process slightly and are no longer accepting applications from organizations with annual revenue of over $2 million per year* or from disease/illness-specific organizations.

While we recognize that this may be disappointing to some of you, we hope this will save everyone work in the long run. Ultimately, we found that, because our grants are small, our review process tended to favor smaller organizations; we also realized that choosing one prognosis/health condition over another wasn't really reflective of our mission.

Our application process is straightforward. Please read through our process and eligibility criteria here. Once you have familiarized yourself and ensured your organization's eligibility, you can click through to our application software from our website. We try to make the process easy for you and encourage you to cut-and-paste material from other foundation's applications where relevant.

Please note that our grants close at 5pm on March 20th. That is a hard deadline: no applications will be accepted thereafter. (We don't want anyone working after 5pm on a Friday!)

Thank you for all of the good work you do in our community.

Warmest wishes,
The Board and Staff of The Portland Clinic Foundation
