Once completed, procedures for submitting grant proposals and annual reports will be available from this site.

Requests for Grant Proposals
The Leonard Family Foundation 
is developing a request-for-proposal process for the solicitation, receipt, review and approval of requests for a limited number of competitive grants.

Annual Reports
It is anticipated that some grants will be renewable, with yearly continuations of awarded grants contingent on receipt of an Annual Report due immediately following the anniversary of the award date.  Annual reports will contain a written description of how the funds were used, the goals accomplished and a description of the goals for the next 12 months.  Goals should be specific, measurable and time dependent.
