2017 Grantmaking Cycle

Dear Friend of the John Templeton Foundation,
Sir John Templeton believed that individuals across the globe have creative and innovative ideas that stand to advance our understanding and well-being in ways compatible with his philanthropic intentions. For this reason, the John Templeton Foundation provides opportunities each year for applicants to submit requests for funds to support efforts that bring those ideas to life. 
In 2017, we will provide a single opportunity to submit funding requests of any amount. The deadline for submitting these requests is August 31, 2017. The Foundation gives careful consideration to how many opportunities we will provide for applicants to submit funding requests in the following year. These decisions are based on numerous factors, including the number of requests we anticipate receiving, our capacity to review new requests while managing a robust portfolio of active grants, and the available funding for new requests. 
We also want to take this opportunity to remind potential applicants that there is one remaining window for submitting small funding requests (less than $217,400 USD) in 2016. The deadline for submitting these funding requests is November 30, 2016. 
To view the full details and relevant deadlines for our 2016 and 2017 funding opportunities, we invite you to visit our Grantmaking Calendar. To go to the Templeton Portal and apply for funding, please click here.
With gratitude,
Heather Templeton Dill
