WHAT

WE FUND

The Foundation funds research and advocacy, experimentation, scaling up of promising interventions, and exchange of knowledge and models – with the overarching goal of contributing to large-scale change in policy and practice. We award grants through three program areas that we have prioritized during the last decade because of their importance to the region. Click on the links below to learn more about our current priorities in each program area.

Funded activities may include, but are not restricted to, community engagement and capacity-building, applied research, measurement and evaluation activities, and workshops and conferences related to the Foundation’s areas of interest. We welcome collaboration among organizations in Latin America and prefer to fund institutions that are actively engaged with a broad array of stakeholders impacted by the identified challenge.

While the Foundation supports advocacy and policy-based work, as a private foundation we are unable to support certain types of activities related to legislation and lobbying. Please refer to the Overview of U.S. Lobbying and Political Campaigning Rules for Grantees prior to submitting letter of inquiry or proposal. Guidance on how to obtain funding for advocacy from private and public foundations is available from the Bolder Advocacy initiative.

HOW TO APPLY

The sequence of the application process in the online portal is as follows:
01
Eligibility Quiz

This Quiz allows us to determine if your organization qualifies for support from the Foundation (for those accessing the letter of inquiry form from the link provided on the grants portal login page).

02
Letter of Inquiry (LOI)

Letters of inquiry will provide a brief description of your proposed project as well as an estimate of the project budget.

03
Full Proposal

Full Proposals should include all aspects of the project.  They will only be required if the proposed project falls within our areas of interest.

APPLICATION DETAILS

Once you have reviewed the requirements for each step of the process, go to our Online Grants Portal to access the letter of inquiry and/or proposal form. Please note that the actual letter of inquiry and proposal forms are available only when the grant cycles are open.

The letter of inquiry (LOI) form on our online grants portal, Fluxx, begins with a series of eligibility criteria questions, shown here. Organizations that pass the eligibility quiz may proceed to the LOI section. If you have an individual login for your organization, you may submit an LOI directly within the portal using the login platform. You do not need to complete the eligibility quiz.

Is this application for an organization with charitable status (i.e., do you have United States 501(c)(3) tax status or its equivalent if the organization is located outside the U.S.)?

It is our policy to fund organizations with a charitable purpose, i.e., with United States 501(c)(3) tax status or its equivalent if the organization is located outside the U.S.

Will the organization’s project be focused geographically in/on the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries of Latin America?

Project activities must take place in our areas of geographic interest.

Will the organization’s project fall under the Democratic Governance, Education, or Sustainable Resource Management program areas as outlined on our website?

We will fund only those projects aligned with our programmatic priorities.

Is your organization requesting support for any of the following: individuals, including individual research; direct or grassroots lobbying; annual or other fund-raising appeals; school tuition or scholarships, or child sponsorships; support for building construction or major equipment purchases; production costs for film, television, and radio projects; art museum collections, films, and exhibits; or endowments?

Tinker does not fund these activities or entities.

The Letter of Inquiry (LOI) allows us to assess the appropriateness of the project and determine if a full proposal is warranted. We require an LOI to limit the time and effort applicants might otherwise spend on preparing a full proposal that is not likely to be supported.

Please review the following guidelines before preparing your LOI and before accessing the site. Allow yourself sufficient time to enter data into our online grant portal, Fluxx. Please note the actual letter of inquiry form is available only when the grant cycles are open.

There are two ways to access the letter of inquiry (LOI) form:

  1. 1. WITHOUT LOGIN CREDENTIALS: You may submit an LOI by clicking the green button on our online Grants Portal page when the LOI period is open (see dates above). The form includes a series of eligibility questions to verify your eligibility. If you pass the eligibility requirements, you may submit an LOI during the open application period. The questions for the eligibility quiz and the letter of inquiry are available on our website. NOTE: You do not need login credentials to submit an LOI.
  2. 2. WITH LOGIN CREDENTIALS: If you have an individual login profile for your organization, you may submit an LOI by logging into the online Grants Portal when the LOI period is open (see dates above). NOTE: If you have login credentials but choose to submit the LOI using the method described in #1, you must be logged out of the portal.

LETTER OF INQUIRY REQUIRED INFORMATION

Basic contact information about the organization

If your project includes a partnership of multiple organizations, one organization must assume responsibility for completing the application and for receiving and managing the funds.

If your organization and/or project is working with a fiscal sponsor or agent, provide information about your organization/project. [Fiscal sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which a 501(c)(3) public charity sponsors a project that may lack tax-exempt status per the United States Internal Revenue Service.]

You will be asked to provide the following information in Fluxx:

  • Does your organization have 501(c)(3) status in the U.S.? (If yes, you will be asked to provide the organization’s EIN)
  • Does this application have a fiscal sponsor, or will another organization manage grant funds on your behalf? (If yes, please provide the fiscal sponsor/agent’s name)
  • Organization name
  • Legal Name
  • Organization Mailing address
  • Organization Email
  • Organization Website Link

Basic primary contact information for the project

If your project includes a partnership of multiple organizations, one organization must assume responsibility for completing the application and for receiving and managing the funds.

If your organization and/or project is working with a fiscal sponsor or agent, provide information about your organization/project. [Fiscal sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which a 501(c)(3) public charity sponsors a project that may lack tax-exempt status per the United States Internal Revenue Service.]

You will be asked to provide the following information in Fluxx:

  • Prefix/Suffix
  • First and Last name
  • Job Title
  • Email
  • Work phone (and extension if applicable)
A project title

A concise description (“title”) of your project (not a sentence!)

An executive summary of the project

The project summary should include a brief overview of the activities and goals of your project, along with some contextual background information. Ideally, the summary should be no more than two pages (roughly 1,000 words) using single-spaced 12-point font. The system allows you to exceed that page length, if necessary, but we strongly prefer a concise letter of inquiry. For this reason, in the LOI process, we do not accept additional information, such as graphics or other digital files. You may choose to add/embed links to external sites within the summary to provide context (e.g., photos, videos, reports, etc.).

To avoid any problems with internet connectivity, we recommend that prepare your summary in a Word document and paste it into the online application. After doing so, please review the online form to ensure that paragraph breaks and other formatting elements have been maintained.

Geographic Region(s) Focus

Country or countries where project effort is focused. (Please see the eligibility criteria section of our website for a list of eligible geographic areas. )

Whether your organization has received funding previously from the Tinker Foundation

Yes/no

Organizations without 501(c)(3) status/Non-U.S. organizations only: Has your organization ever received international grants?

Yes, no, or N/A. We define international as grants you have received from outside the country you legally operate in. Enter N/A if you are a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Most recent annual organizational budget total (in U.S. dollars)

Enter the anticipated expenses for the current fiscal year. If you are a university, you may enter your department/center budget.

Project duration (in months)

We provide support for a maximum of 36 months.

Tinker institutional grants program area

Select Democratic Governance, Education, Sustainable Resource Management, or Other. Please read our program area guidelines and choose the correct program area.

Where did you learn about this grant opportunity?

Select from a menu.

After reviewing all the letters of inquiry, we invite a limited number of organizations to submit a full proposal. The proposal allows us to understand each project more deeply and confirm its fit with Tinker’s programmatic priorities. Although we limit the number of proposals we accept, an invitation to submit a proposal is not a guarantee of funding. In practice, we typically fund one-third to one-half of the proposals we receive. Final decisions are based on our assessment of programmatic relevance and potential impact of each project, as well as institutional strategic and financial considerations.

Please review the following guidelines before preparing your proposal and before accessing the site. Allow yourself sufficient time to enter data into our online grant portal, Fluxx. Please note, the actual proposal form is only available when the grant cycles are open and if you have been invited to submit a full proposal.

The Full Proposal in our online grant portal consists of five required sections with the following required information.

FAQs

How do we learn more about Tinker Foundation's past grants?

Information about our previous grants can be found in the Grants Database.

What is the size of your grants?

Grant amounts vary by program area and project. However, grants typically range between $50,000 to $150,000 per year, for up to three years. We also welcome requests for smaller grants in support of more bounded projects or to complement other resources.

What is your capital expense policy?

We rarely fund capital equipment purchases on any single tangible item that has a useful life of more than one year and a value equal to or greater than $5,000. If you have any questions, please contact us. However, if your organization has 501(c)(3) status, capital purchases are allowable at the discretion of the program officer and are analyzed as part of the overall review of project budgets. If you have any questions, please contact us.

What percentage of a project budget can we request?

In some cases, we will serve as the sole funder of a project but we are receptive to and supportive of co-funding arrangements that allow us to contribute to a project that may exceed our funding capacity.

What is the maximum duration of a project?

We may provide support for a maximum of three years.

Do you provide general support grants?

Given our size and strategy, the Foundation currently focuses its grants on project support. However, you may consult with one of our program officers to discuss the specific needs of your organization.

Are there deadlines for submitting my funding request?

Yes. The deadlines for the current year are posted on our website and our online grants portal.

If we already have an open grant, can we apply for support for another project?

We prefer to close out a prior grant before considering a new request. However, requests to submit a new application while an organization has an open grant may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Contact your program officer to discuss.

Does the Tinker Foundation accept applications for projects in multiple countries or with regional impact?

We welcome proposals addressing regional, transnational, and comparative approaches.

Can Tinker Foundation grant funds be used to meet donor matching requirements?

Yes. The Foundation encourages grantees to seek matching or additional funds to diversify funding sources and fully fund the cost of the project.

Whom should we contact at Tinker if we have questions during the application process?

Contact our Grants Manager, Angelina Pienczykowski (apienczykowski[at]tinker[dot]org), with any administrative questions regarding due dates, reporting, or the online portal (Fluxx), etc.

Contact the program officer to discuss project details or if you have substantive questions regarding the project.

Can the Tinker Foundation make a grant to organizations other than United States 501(c)(3) public charities?

Yes. Tinker Foundation will assume expenditure responsibility for grants to non-501(c)(3) entities. For more information on expenditure responsibility, please click here.

Does the Tinker Foundation support fiscally sponsored projects?

Applicants with a fiscal sponsor are eligible for funding.

Do you make grants to for-profit organizations?

In most cases, no. We do not accept unsolicited inquiries from for-profit organizations.

Does the Tinker Foundation make grants to individuals?

No.

Does the Tinker Foundation make grants to network/partnership/consortium organizations?

Yes. However, one organization must assume administrative and fiscal responsibility for the entire project. Consulting contracts or agreements between the network/partnership/consortium organizations are required.

Can Tinker Foundation Funds be used for lobbying activities?

Tinker Foundation grant funds may not be used for lobbying expenditures. Please review the Overview of U.S. Lobbying and Political Campaigning Rules for Grantees.

How should we proceed if the project fits into more than one program area?

Select the program area that best fits your project. Foundation staff will coordinate internally to confirm program alignment.

What is a letter of inquiry?

The letter of inquiry is the first step in the application process and gives an applicant the opportunity to provide a brief narrative of the organization and project.

Can I submit the letter of inquiry in a language other than English?

As a matter of general policy, materials should be submitted in English. However, if this presents a significant challenge, please reach out to Tinker staff. In some cases, our program officers may accept letters of inquiry in Spanish or Portuguese.

Who reviews the letter of inquiry?

Letters of inquiry are reviewed by program officers.

How can I access the letter of inquiry form?

There are two ways to access the letter of inquiry (LOI) form.

1. WITHOUT LOGIN CREDENTIALS: You can submit an LOI by clicking the green button on our online Grants Portal page when the LOI period is open (see dates above). The form will show a series of eligibility questions that will verify your eligibility. The eligibility test questions and LOI are available on our website. NOTE: You do not need login information to submit an LOI.

2. WITH LOGIN CREDENTIALS: If you have an individual login profile for your organization, you can submit an LOI by logging into the Grants Portal. This is possible only when our LOI period is open (see dates above). NOTE: If you have login credentials but choose to submit the LOI using the method described in #1, you must be logged out of the portal.

I am a fiscally sponsored project. What information should I include in the letter of inquiry?

If your organization/project is fiscally sponsored, enter information about your organization/project not the fiscal sponsor. At this stage of the process we only need to know that there will be fiscal sponsor and the name of the sponsor. [Fiscal sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which a 501(c)(3) public charity sponsors a project that may lack tax-exempt status per the United States Internal Revenue Service.]

If the project is working with a network/partnership/consortium of organizations, what information should I include in the letter of inquiry?

If your project includes multiple partners, we only need to know the name and contact information for the organization that will assume responsibility for completing the application and for receiving and managing the funds. The project description should follow our guidelines for the letter of inquiry narrative component.

Can I submit multiple letters of inquiry for different projects?

Since we are very unlikely to fund more than one project at a time, we prefer that you limit the number of concurrent submissions. If you have multiple projects that you would like us to consider, please contact a program officer to determine which one might be the strongest fit.

Should the letter of inquiry describe the concept of a new project or do you fund projects that are already in progress?

We are receptive to both types of projects. For an existing project, we would want to see evidence that Tinker Foundation funds would advance the effort and not just fund ongoing operating expenses. For example, we might consider proposals for supporting an evaluation or sharing of lessons learned, scaling to other contexts or geographies, etc.

What if we are uncertain about the level of funding at the letter of inquiry stage?

Uncertainty about budget amounts and sources at the letter of inquiry stage is understandable. We are interested in your estimate of 1) the total budget as well as 2) the total amount to be requested from Tinker. You do not need to provide full line-item budgets at the letter of inquiry stage.

We have a letter of inquiry that appears to fit within Foundation guidelines. Should we set up a meeting with Foundation staff to present our idea?

You do not need to speak with a program officer before submitting a letter of inquiry. While you are welcome to schedule a phone call or meeting to discuss your project concept, please note that due to the high volume of requests that we receive, we cannot meet or speak with all organizations before they submit a letter of inquiry.

Why can’t I add information for more than one contact for the letter of inquiry?

We prefer one lead contact for letters of inquiry to ensure that communications are delivered correctly. If you are submitting on behalf of your organization, please be sure to communicate with the rest of your team.

It would be helpful to add multimedia to describe my project. Will I be able to do this?

The system does not accept multimedia letters of inquiry; please reach out to a program officer with any additional questions.

What happens once the letter of inquiry is submitted?

Letters of inquiry are reviewed on a rolling basis and you should receive notice of its status no later than two weeks following the letter of inquiry close date. If you have not received an email communication by this time, please contact Tinker staff.

Would I be able to receive feedback if my letter of inquiry has not been successful?

We strive to provide feedback where possible. However, please note that most letters of inquiry are not declined due to poor quality. Rather it is usually because they do not align with our core priorities or parameters, may exceed our funding capacity, or because of a timing mismatch.

Would I be able to apply again if my letter of inquiry was not successful?

If your letter of inquiry was not successful, we generally do not recommend submitting the same or similar letter of inquiry. If you have any questions about Tinker Foundation’s funding priorities, please click here to view our program areas or reach out to a program officer. If your letter of inquiry has been declined, you may wish to contact the relevant program staff for feedback before submitting a new letter of inquiry.

I am a fiscally sponsored project. What information should I include in the proposal?

If your organization/project is fiscally sponsored, the project and the fiscal sponsor will need to submit organization documentation. [Per the United States Internal Revenue Service, fiscal sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which a 501(c)(3) public charity sponsors a project that may lack tax-exempt status.]

Can I submit the proposal in a language other than English?

As a matter of general policy, materials should be submitted in English except for some of the attachments as indicated in the proposal guidelines. However, if this presents a significant challenge, please reach out to your program officer to discuss. In some cases, Tinker Foundation program officers may accept proposals in Spanish or Portuguese.

Some of the project details have changed since I submitted the letter of inquiry. Can I modify the letter of inquiry?

Although you cannot modify the letter of inquiry, you will be able to provide new information and/or updated numbers in the proposal stage. Inform the Tinker program officer if the project has changed significantly from the concept described in your letter of inquiry.

Do you have a project budget template or can we use our budget format?

Tinker uses a project budget template that asks for the total project costs, amount requested from Tinker, and other sources of funding (if applicable). Budgets categories will include but are not limited to personnel, travel and per diem, meetings and publications, and equipment and supplies.

Can we include bank transaction costs in the budget?

You may request funds for bank transaction costs.

What happens once the proposal is submitted?

Once a proposal is received, proposals will be reviewed by the program staff. In some cases, Tinker staff may contact you with questions. All final funding decisions are made during the Tinker Board of Directors meetings in June or December.

Would I be able to receive feedback if my proposal has not been successful?

We strive to give feedback to all proposal submissions as we understand the time and effort it takes to submit a full proposal.

Do I need to complete the proposal in one session?

At any time during the application process, you may click the “save” button, exit the system, and return at another time to complete your submission.

How do I return to an incomplete proposal that I saved but have not yet submitted?

To access a saved proposal in progress, log into the Grants Portal using your username and password. We recommended that you bookmark the page to return easily to your work.
