APPLYING FOR A GRANT
 
We initiate most funding opportunities by contacting  the organizations and inviting them to submit proposals.  Accordingly, unsolicited proposals are only rarely successful.  If despite the odds against success, you wish to submit a proposal, you should carefully review what we fund and what we do not fund .  If after completing your review, you believe that your proposed endeavor is within our guidelines, you should write a short (not more than two page) proposal letter on the letterhead of the applicant addressed to the foundation.  This letter should include:
 
        The organization's legal name
        Mailing address
        Phone and fax numbers
        E-mail address
        Web site address, if available
 
Please send this letter by regular mail to:
 
Michael J. Connell Foundation
776 East Green Street, Suite 230
Pasadena, CA 91101-5402
 
PLEASE DO NOT HAND DELIVER OR SEND PROPOSALS BY MESSENGER SERVICE.  Our offices are not open to the general public, and most messengered packages do not reach us until long after normal mail service will reach us.
 
We do not accept proposals by fax or e-mail.
 
Please do not include lengthy brochures, tape cassettes, CD ROMs, or videotapes with your letter.  We will not return any of these items.  Most, if not all, of these items, are discarded, since we do not have storage facilities to accommodate them.
 
If we want more information on any proposal we will request it.  We will only visit with new applicants after we express an interest in a proposal.
