Before You Apply

As a small foundation, the Longview Foundation must focus its resources in order to have impact. Trustees have identified K-12 education in the U.S. as their primary area of interest and fund projects that directly support building global perspectives in teachers and students. Proposals funded will advance the field or impact significant numbers of students.

What the Longview Foundation does NOT fund:

  • Projects outside the United States or
  • Projects that reach small numbers of students and teachers
  • Work that does not advance or contribute to the field overall
  • Support for individual PK-12 schools or programs within individual schools
  • International travel
  • Project work linked to a specific country
  • Overhead/indirect costs above 10%
  • Individuals
  • For-profit entities

Budget Amounts and Restrictions

The foundation is interested in supporting activities that have other sources of funding and can demonstrate sustainability beyond the grant period.

Most grants will be between $15,000 and $25,000. Given the current economic climate, the Longview Foundation expects to make fewer grants at the top of this range in 2016.
