COVID-19 Update: Please note that the McConnell Foundation is continuing to accept applications and will be maintaining our commitments to existing grantees as usual. Applications can be submitted through our online granting portal:

We seek to deepen the impact of our philanthropy by:

  • advancing our understanding of complex issues
  • learning and adapting as an organization
  • working with strategic intent
  • building strong relationships

We provide grants to a limited number of initiatives. Proposals should be submitted via our online portal where they will be reviewed by our program staff.
