Steele’s grant process: invitation only.
The Steele Foundation has an invitation-only application process and we do not accept unsolicited letters of inquiry or proposals. We actively engage with a wide range of organizations, institutions, community cohorts and other foundations to monitor ongoing and emerging strategies that improve the lives of children. Steele invites proposals from potential grantees after a careful screening process based on the Foundation’s priorities. Grantees must demonstrate proven impact of their work with kids prior to embarking upon a grant with Steele. Our geographic scope of work is predominantly within the Phoenix and Tucson communities.
