Apply For A Grant


Note: Kalliopeia Foundation welcomes Letters of Inquiry; however, we review full proposals by invitation only. Applicant organizations must be tax-exempt with 501(c)(3) status, or have a fiscal sponsor that has tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status.

First-year grants range from $10,000 to $35,000. We make both general operating support and project support grants. We seek to establish long-term relationships in support of organizations and projects that are well-run, strong additions to our Program Areas and that meet the criteria listed below.

We are particularly interested in projects that have the potential to influence wider circles – whether locally, nationally, or globally – toward a transformation of consciousness resonant with our mission.

Grantmaking Criteria

Funding priority is given to organizations that demonstrate:

  • substantial alignment with our mission and clear relevance to at least one of our program areas;
  • meeting a compelling need in a community or wider culture;
  • holistic and embodied commitment to transformation of consciousness;
  • capacity to reach wider circles, whether locally, nationally, or globally;
  • inclusion of and service to marginalized, disadvantaged, and excluded populations;
  • organizational vitality and effective program implementation;
  • clarity of intention, honest communication, and ability to follow our application process.

We do not fund:

  • individuals;
  • organizations without 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status or a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt fiscal sponsor;
  • large, institutionally-funded nonprofits (except internal programs meeting our goals that may not be otherwise funded);
  • private nonoperating foundations;
  • organizations outside of the United States;
