for a Grant
The Lee-Kahn Foundation is a private non-profit
foundation incorporated under California law. The Foundation
accepts Letters of Inquiry from tax-exempt, non-profit
organizations working to solve issues concerning the
Environment, Wildlife, Arts and Education. We do not
accept Letters of Inquiry that benefit specific individuals
or religious organizations.
The Lee-Kahn Foundation is only able to fund a small
percentage of the grant requests it receives. Many requests
are rejected not because they lack value, but because
they do not match the funding interests of the Foundation.
Grant seekers are asked to submit a form Letter of Inquiry
found below before submitting a formal funding proposal.
Please do not send videos, brochures or any other organizational
materials with your Letter of Inquiry. Letters of Inquiry
should be filled out, using the form below, and contain
the following information:
and Objectives: Describe the goals and objectives
of the project.
Information: Provide a detailed statement describing
the organizations plan for meeting the project goals.
Provide a brief timeline for the project.
Requirements: Briefly explain the organization's
need for funding related specifically to the project.
Describe the personnel and financial resources available
Information: Provide any pertinent information
about your organization.
Staff members from the Lee-Kahn Foundation review each
Letter of Inquiry to determine whether it falls within
the Foundation's areas of interest and fits its funding
priorities. Prompt consideration is given to all. When
a Letter of Inquiry meets our criteria, the organization
will be asked to develop a more detailed proposal. Please
do not submit a proposal unless asked by the Lee-Kahn
The entire form must be completed before your letter
will be considered
