Reminder: Submit your LOI by May 1

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Just a reminder that if you’re planning to submit a letter of inquiry (LOI) to McCormick Foundation’s Journalism Program for 2011 funding, the deadline is May 1, 2010. (Note that this deadline does not apply to funding requests of $50,000 or under—those can be submitted on May 1 or any time later in the year.)

Who should apply by May 1, 2010?
•    Organizations applying for 2011 funding in excess of $50,000.
•    Organizations whose funding will run out in calendar year 2010 (even if your request is for $50,000 or less)

What do I need to do to apply? 
Please download the new application cover sheet and e-mail the application electronically to along with a two to three-page LOI. We will notify you by June 20, 2010 if we have additional questions or would like you to submit a full proposal.

Please note that our funding priorities have changed. Beginning in 2010, the Journalism Program has restructured grantmaking around Content, Audience and Rights. You can read more about the new program strategy on our Web site.

We’ve also prepared a short, two-minute instructional video on what to include in your letter of inquiry. You can find it here. Please contact us if you have any questions.
