The Wallace Genetic Foundation is able to fund only a limited number of organizations, and, therefore, discourages unsolicited grant proposals.

Applicants may initially submit either a letter of inquiry or a full proposal.

All applicants should limit the proposal summary to two pages. The proposal summary is the narrative portion of the proposal describing the organization and the project or projects for which the grant money is being requested.

All letters of inquiry and proposal should be submitted in hard copy. Faxed or e-mailed letters of inquiry or proposals will not be accepted.

Grants commonly fall in the $25,000 to $50,000 range.
