Foundation for the Mid South

We strive to achieve positive results in our work to expand knowledge and improve lives in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.  One way we measure our impact is through grantmaking.

As a part of our commitment to increase our impact and strengthen relationships with our grantees and partners, we have improved our process for grant making and managing grants and contracts. 

Stage 1:  Concept Development

Program staff identify ideas and concepts in support of our strategic priorities.  When an idea or concepts is sufficiently formed, a program officer begins outreach to potential applicants.

Stage 2:  Pre-proposal

Program staff use a variety of means to explore and refine a concept with organizations in the field.

Direct Solicitation:  When we know a particular organization is well-suited to do the work, we reach our to the organization directly to request a grant inquiry or proposal.

Stage 3:  Proposal Development

We provide the relevant guidelines and templates for applicants to use when developing a proposal, budget, and outcomes framework.
