Grants & LoansGrants › Grant Center

Using MCF's Grant Center, nonprofits can apply for grants and submit progress reports online. This is an effort to make it easier to prepare, submit, and track applications and reports. It also furthers MCF's mission to reduce the use of paper in its operations.

Grant Application Center

The MCF Grant Application Center is a convenient way to apply for and track grants. You can use the center to prepare and submit Letters of Intent and Full Proposals, with the ability to log out and finish the process at a later time. The system also allows you to track current and past grants as well as update your personal profile.


Grant Evaluation Center

Using the Grant Evaluation Center, you can submit progress reports for work funded by the Foundation. You will have the ability to enter both quantitative and qualitative data related to your work.

MCF has prepared a list of resources about evaluation for applicants and grantees.
