*Important Announcement*

In an effort to streamline our grant process, beginning in 2018 The Najim Family Foundation will no longer require a Letter of Inquiry.  In addition, we will be converting to an Online Fillable Application.  The application questions will remain the same as previous years; however, it will need to be completed online.  Each organization will be able to save their application at any point prior to completion, as well as, log out when needed without losing information.  Once your application has been submitted, it will be available in PDF form on the online portal.  We ask that you email your assigned Grant Manager to verify your submission; Organizations A-J email Melissa Reed at and Organizations K-Z email Kathleen Fenlon at

The Required Attachments will now include:

  • Current Balance Sheet
  • Last 12 Month Consolidated Income Statement
    • It is acceptable to use the last fiscal year
    • If not available, submit the last FY Income Statement
  • Annual Budget (Current Fiscal Year)
  • IRS Determination Letter
  • Final Report for the previous funding year (if applicable)
  • All other previous “Required Attachments” will now be a part of the fillable application (i.e. Line Item Budget)

Applications for the April Cycle will be accepted through the online portal ONLY beginning February 5, 2018 and closing at 11:59 pm on February 28, 2018. Late or Incomplete submissions will not be accepted. For more information, view the Guidelines and FAQ Pages.

Questions may be directed to Melissa Reed (Organizations A-J) or Kathleen Fenlon (Organizations K-Z).
