The Summer Funding Collaborative consists of public and private funders with specific priorities. Below you will find the specific requirements that each funder of the Summer Funding Collaborative has for programs applying for funding. If you would like a specific funder to consider your application, you must meet their requirements as listed.
This page also lists each organization’s funding priorities. While each funder will use these priorities in deciding which programs to fund, the priorities are not requirements for eligibility.
The first section of this page shows tables that summarize each funder’s priorities and required documents. The remaining sections discuss the requirements in more detail.
