Carnegie Corporation of New York is transitioning to a new grants management system.  As a result, from 10/6 through 10/25 we will be temporarily unable to receive letters of inquiry.  We encourage you to return to our site when we launch the new system on 10/26.

Before applying, grantseekers should understand that we do not seek, and only occasionally fund, unsolicited grant applications.

Only full proposals that have been invited for submission will be considered. After a letter of inquiry has been reviewed, applicants may be invited via email to submit a full proposal.
