Open Call for Proposals The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) is pleased to announce an open request for proposals beginning May 1, 2012.
Organizations must complete an online Letter of Intent (LOI) by Friday May 18, 2012. All LOIs will be reviewed by EJAF, and organizations approved to submit a full application will be notified in June, with full on-line applications due in July. All full applications will be reviewed by EJAF and funding decisions will be communicated to applicants in December 2012. Please note that if you are requesting renewed funding for a project supported by EJAF in 2011, you will need to fill out a different form. All organizations making a renewal request should contact EJAF staff for more information. For this 2012 funding round, as in previous years, EJAF invites LOIs from any proposed project that is aligned with posted EJAF grant-making priorities, which include HIV programs focused on gay men’s health and rights, African American health and rights, youth mobilization for sexual health and rights, syringe access and harm reduction, post-prison community re-entry, and scale-up of quality HIV programming in the Southern U.S., Puerto Rico, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Unsolicited proposals should request no more than $50,000 for activities during calendar year 2012. Please also note the following parameters for all applicants and funding requests: • EJAF will generally fund only one proposal per organization. • EJAF will not fund grants to individuals or for-profit institutions, conferences or meetings, or infrastructure costs. • Any charitable (not-for-profit) organization located in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, and Central and South America may apply for funding by the Elton John AIDS Foundation. (Potential applicants in Africa, Asia, and Europe should apply to our sister Foundation in the UK.) If you have any questions or need assistance with this application process, please contact Matt Blinstrubas at firstname.lastname@example.org
