Letter of Inquiry Process

Register and submit a letter of inquiry (LOI) to initiate the grant application process in the Commonwealth Fund Grants Portal. Step-by-step instructions are available on the sidebar. The LOI should present information clearly and concisely, with a description that includes the following information: 

  • Statement of problem and purpose of grant 

  • Description of project’s targeted audience(s) 

  • Project design, including schedule and work plan 

  • Description of project’s expected outcomes 

  • Estimated total project cost and total amount requested from the Commonwealth Fund 

  • Organization staffing and financial resources. 

At the LOI stage, the Commonwealth Fund does not require a full budget or other supporting documents, aside from the detailed project description. The length of the project description should be no more than three (3) pages of a Word document with 12-point font (approximately 2,500 words). 

Questions? Review the FAQs and program funding priorities. A sample LOI form and a step-by-step guide to applying are on the sidebar.
