A proposal to the Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation must consist of the following three parts:

  • A completed proposal cover sheet
  • Required attachments
  • A two to four-page proposal narrative (outlined below)

For current and/or past grantee partners, the foundation may extend the option of submitting a grant renewal application instead of a formal proposal. Information on the grant renewal application can be found on the Grant Renewals page.

Proposal Narrative

Using two to four single‐spaced pages, please provide the following information about your organization’s work. You may change the order of the information in each of the subheadings and collapse subheadings to accurately describe your goals. Please feel free to copy and paste from a proposal you have submitted to another funder. If you need additional space, you may exceed the page requirement.
