Please read our information below to learn more how our grant application process works, as well as our FAQ page to learn more.


To ensure your application gets processed quickly, please take the following steps:

  1. Read The Grove Creative Funding Agreement. Please carefully review it before submitting your application. By submitting the application, if accepted, you agree to be legally bound by this agreement. If you have any questions, please contact us.
  2. After filling out the application, please print a copy for your own records before you hit the Send button.
  3. After you hit Send, please pay the $99 application fee.
  4. Email us a copy of your Project Budget, detailing your proposed expenses. (Word or Excel file)

Please do not skip any of these steps. Your proposal, budget and payment represent a complete application. Only complete applications will be submitted to our review committee.* 

If you have questions about your budget, we typically cover this in our 20 Minute Consultation Call. If budgeting is not your strong suit, we can assist you so it meets our submission requirements.

Once we receive your completed application, we will contact you to go over your proposal. The Grove Board of Directors will then review your proposal. If approved, you will receive the Creative Funding Agreement to sign and return. If payment is made directly to you as an individual, you will need to send in a W-9 or your company EIN. Our approval process takes between 2-3 weeks.

Please do not fill out this form if you do not intend to send in your accompanying budget and application fee. Still have questions? Email us first. Thank you!
