The John Templeton Foundation closed its 2021 Online Funding Inquiry (OFI) application window on August 20, 2021. This year, the Foundation received 2,370 inquiries totaling slightly over $1.38 billion in requested funding. After rigorous review, Foundation staff have invited 7.7% of the applicants received to submit Full Proposals describing in detail their proposed projects. The Full Proposals span across eleven different funding areas and one funding competition.
“We’d like to extend our gratitude to all who submitted funding inquiries to the Foundation this year,” said Heather Templeton Dill, President of the John Templeton Foundation. “We are delighted to see the outpouring of interest in the Foundation’s funding priorities, and we truly appreciate the time and effort spent preparing each inquiry.”
