The Kampe Foundation requires all organizations interested in funding to submit a letter of inquiry (LOI).

Letter of inquiry instructions
Your letter of inquiry to the Kampe Foundation should be two to three pages (maximum) providing the following information:

  • A statement of your organizational goals, mission and history of your accomplishments.
  • The relationship of the request to your mission.
  • The purpose of your request, and need for proposed project funding.
  • Anticipated outcome of the project if funded.
  • A plan for project evaluation.

After we receive your letter of inquiry, it will be reviewed by the Foundation board. Applicants will be notified regarding our interest within eight weeks of the submission. If the project is selected for further consideration, a program officer will send out an application and schedule a meeting to discuss the request.
