Grant Application Process for First-time Applicants
(If you have previously received a grant from the Couch Family Foundation, click here.)
The Couch Family Foundation has a specific geographical focus that prioritizes the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire and Vermont.
Potential new grantees are asked to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to determine the appropriateness of the application. A foundation staff member is available to discuss prospective proposal ideas and assist organizations in the application process. Upon receipt of the LOI, the Foundation may request additional information from the applicant.
Applications may be directed to the following:
New initiatives or pilot programs,
Special projects or enhancement of current projects and programs,
Impact-study or outcomes evaluation of current programs, or
Internal capacity building for the organization.
If you are a first-time applicant or have not applied for funding in the last three years and you would like to submit an LOI to the Foundation, please complete these steps:
