Deadlines

Deadlines are January 15 and the first business day of May and September. If January 15 falls on a weekend or the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, proposals must be in our office by 5:00 p.m. the following business day. One hard copy of the application must be in our office by 5:00 p.m. on the following dates. We do not accept applications via fax or email.

Upcoming Deadlines:
Tuesday, September 3, 2019
Wednesday, January 15, 2020
Friday, May 1, 2020

Please note:

  • Applications for school-year-only programs will not be accepted for the May deadline. At a site visit, we want to see the program in action and be able to talk to all of the appropriate people. Generally, seeing an abbreviated program is not acceptable. If the primary program for which you are requesting funding operates only between August and June, please plan to apply at the September or January deadline.
  • Final grant decisions are made and monies are released approximately four months after each deadline. We are unable to respond to emergency funding needs.
  • The Buell Foundation is no longer funding constructive activities programs.
