PMIEF accepts grant applications on a rolling basis; there is no submission deadline. After creating an online account, applicants must submit online using the grant application template. The required information includes details pertaining to:
- organizational information;
- organizational profile;
- proposed initiative;
- organizational financials;
- initiative budget; and
- initiative timeline with key milestones and deliverables.
Applicants must also submit the grant budget form. It requires itemization of personnel, direct, subgrant and indirect expenses by year. They must specify the amount requested from PMIEF relative to the total budget of the initiative and list other sources of funding for it.
In addition, applicants are required to submit:
- a copy of the organization’s Internal Revenue Service determination letter verifying 501(c)(3)/nonprofit status;
- an IRS W9 form (or W8 form for organizations outside the U.S.);
- a copy of the organization's most recently audited financial statement;
- either a copy of the organization’s Internal Revenue Service Form 990 or equivalent documentation;
- an organizational budget; and a list of Board members.
Please Note: PMIEF strongly advises applicants to develop and to submit a concept note as a precursor to submitting the grant application. While PMIEF does not mandate a specific format for the concept note, it should include a brief overview of the:
- proposed initiative and how it aligns with our areas of focus;
- anticipated outcomes of the initiative;
- potential challenges in executing the initiative;
- partners, if any, that will support the initiative; and
- organizational contact information, including the name(s), e-mail address(es) and telephone number(s) of the key person(s).
In addition, the concept note should provide a summary of the applicant’s organizational mission as well as an estimate of the grant amount to be requested.
Concept notes should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Grant Application – Concept Note.”
