Mississippi River

How to Apply


Overview

The first step is to familiarize yourself with our Mississippi River program guidelines. If you are unclear about your organization's fit with our funding strategies, call the River team at 612-333-4220.

To help you prepare, you can preview both the initial inquiry and full proposal application forms at any time. You may also want to review our funding FAQ or the organizations in our grantee database.

The application system opens approximately two weeks prior to each initial inquiry deadline. (See table below.) During that window, click "apply online" below to start a new application.


Deadlines

McKnight's deadlines are quarterly. The inquiry submission date will determine when a full proposal, if invited, is considered by our board.
