The Joe Niekro Foundation™ accepts Letters of Intent during the grant application period of September 1-October 1. Texas applicants will receive priority. Applications will not be accepted without an approved LOI. Funding checks are provided to US organizations only; individuals will not be considered.

Applicants must supply a Letter of Intent no more than two pages and address the following:

  • Goals and objectives of the proposed project
  • Geographic area the proposed project will serve

  • Other financial support secured for the project, if any

The Letter of Intent should be addressed to the Joe Niekro Foundation™ Steering Committee and be received by October 1st of the current year.

Upon review of a Letter of Intent, applicants may be asked to complete a full grant application. Full grant applications should only be submitted upon request from JNF.

Successful grantees will be notified within 60 days of receipt of the LOI. We do our best to respond to all inquiries, but if you have not received notification from us within 60 days of your LOI submission, please contact [email protected]. Grantees will be subject to reporting requirements and those requirements are outlined in a Grant Agreement that will be signed at the time of acceptance.
