The E-Grant System is comprised of two sections:
• User Registration
• Grant Application
The applicant is the person responsible for completing a grant proposal for the organization. The grant proposal process includes completing an Application Form, including required attachments requested in the form.
IMPORTANT: If you are not a first time user/applicant, proceed to Section II and log on to the E-Grant System.
- If you are a first time applicant in the online application system, the first step is to click on Create New Account and create a new account for the nonprofit organization seeking a grant, including the primary contact and the chief executive officer of the organization. A tutorial video is available on the Foundation Logon Page, as well as on the Foundation website, www.gellertfoundation.org. Click here for the tutorial video on how to create a new account. There is also an applicant tutorial document, designed to provide applicants with instructions for use of the E-Grant Application System, called Foundant Technologies. This applicant tutorial document is available here.
After you register by creating a new account if you are a first time applicant, proceed to Section II, # 2. Previous year applicants proceed to Section II, # 1.
- If you have accessed this E-Grant Application before, you will log-in with the SAME email address and password you used previously when creating an account. Click on Log On after entering your information. IMPORTANT: Your credentials (email and password) do not change unless you change them or ask us to reset them. If you are uncertain of your account status please email Rosa King, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at (650) 985-2080 to inquire. It's best to avoid duplication.
- Choose “Apply” on the navigation menu once you are logged onto the foundation’s online grants management system and then click on the blue "Apply" link under “The Carl Gellert and Celia Berta Gellert Foundation Grant 2017” section in order to be directed to the application page.
- Once on the application page, answer all of the application questions pertinent to your organization and submit the completed application by no later than August 15, 2017.
