Important information

Please have the following information on hand while completing the form:

  • The contact information of the organization submitting the request, and that of the organization that will act as agent (name and title of the individual responsible, email address, telephone number, cell phone number, address) so that we can get in touch with you.
  • A brief description of the project you wish to undertake, clearly indicating the intended results, and the amount requested of the Foundation.

If your request meets all the eligibility criteria, and you have all the above-mentioned information on hand, then you are ready to complete the “Submit your idea” form online.  

You must complete the form in a continuous fashion. You will not be able to save a partially completed form and finalize it later on. The form should take between 30 minutes and an hour to complete.

Once your idea has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email from the Foundation. Your idea will be carefully analyzed and you will receive a response with 4 to 8 weeks indicating whether your idea was accepted or not. Given the very large number of submissions we receive, we are not able to provide detailed responses when ideas are declined.
