Auto-save

This form is equipped with an auto-save feature. For forms with more than one page, each time you navigate between pages, forward or back, your form responses are committed to a secure area within your browser’s local storage. You can close your browser and resume your progress automatically at any time simply by opening the form again. This information is only sent to our servers once you submit the form.

Why do I have to complete each page before moving on to the next one, instead of working on pages out of sequence?

This web form is dynamic, meaning that the answers on each page can determine which questions come next. The form pages need to be completed in sequence to maintain the flow of questions and answers.

Can I cut and paste from other documents?

Yes. However, when copying formatted content (i.e., documents containing any markup like bullets, special layouts, varying font styles, etc.), keep in mind that any formatting will be discarded, and you should review what you’ve copied in to be sure it’s represented accurately.

I’m worried about computer security. Why do I need to enable cookies?

This form only uses session cookies and local browser storage, which are temporary storage locations within your browser. This helps preserve your responses as you go through the form. Session cookies are removed when you close your browser and expire after 30 minutes of inactivity. Also, your form responses never reach our servers until you submit your form. For more information about our privacy policy, follow the link at the bottom of this page.

Can I make changes after I’ve gone through the form?

Yes. You can go back to individual pages and make any changes, but once you’ve submitted the form you can’t view your responses or make additional changes.

Can I access my responses after I’ve submitted the form?

No. Once you’ve submitted the form you can’t view or access your responses.

I’m having technical difficulties. Who can I contact?

Follow the “Contact Us” link at the top of this page. This will open a short form for entering your contact details and a brief description of your problem. We’ll then contact you with help.

Why are there so many questions on the form?

Since we make our funding decisions responsibly, we require specific information regarding the submitting organizations, the initiatives proposed and the community benefits of these programs and events. That said, we generally require less information for smaller requests than for larger ones.

I have all this information in a single document. Why can't I attach it or just send it in as my proposal?

Because of the volume of requests we receive, it’s essential that each proposal is in a consistent format that our team can review as efficiently as possible. If we require more information or your prepared materials, we’ll contact you after our preliminary review of your application.

What are the best ways to answer the questions correctly?

Keep your answers concise (generally no more than 150-200 words). Include the most important points about your plans, the community benefits and how things will change as a result of your work. Remember to tell us why you think our company is a good fit with your organization and how our funding will benefit both the community and our company. If we require further information, we’ll contact you after a preliminary review.

What if I have questions about eligibility? Can I use the Contact Us form?

The Contact Us form is for technical support only. Our agents are unable to answer questions about eligibility. Our forms will typically display a notice if you’re not eligible based on the answers you provide. If you don’t get a notice like this, then you’re eligible!
