Family Economic Security Funding

Funding Process

The Rainwater Charitable Foundation accepts proposals for funding by invitation only, however we review LOIs for programs that fall within our current areas of focus:

Our team reviews letters of intent (LOI) twice a year, in April and October. Please note, we can only make grants to organizations designated as a 501c3 Public Charity by the IRS (or the equivalent) and we are unable to make grants to the following:

  • Private Foundations
  • Individuals or Families
  • Political Organizations, political candidates, lobbyists, or related organizations
  • International organizations that are not qualified under U.S. IRS regulations

If your organization falls within one of our Family Economic Security funding focus areas and is not excluded by the above restrictions, you may submit an LOI by following the instructions below.

To access our Grantee Portal:
Create a new account or login to an existing account.

Once you have logged in, please follow these steps to submit your LOI:

  1. Click Apply.
  2. Enter access code “2024 LOI”. (Password is case sensitive and includes space.)
  3. Answer questions in application.
  4. Click Save if you’d like to return to the LOI later, and click Submit when you have completed the form. Once you’ve submitted the LOI, you’ll receive an automated email confirmation.
