The CGA consists of a Request Form accompanied by either Application A or Application B. Both Application A and Application B are similar, but the level of detail within the proposal narrative varies depending upon the dollar amount of the request. The Request Form provides essential data about your request and your organization.
Completing the CGA: Begin by downloading the Request Form and saving it to your computer as a writable document. You can enter your information into the form. Use the Tab button to move through the various fields to enter the required information. Areas shaded in gray indicate editable areas. Review the Instructions for additional guidance.
Submitting the CGA: when the forms are completed, email or print and mail it directly to the grantmaker. Please note, some grantmakers ask you to submit the Request Form as a letter of inquiry before being invited to submit Application A or B.
