How long is the approval process? How will I know if I’ve been approved?

Once the completed application and letter confirming your cancer diagnosis have been submitted, the grant request will be reviewed. Some requests are reviewed quickly; others are presented to the full board for review at the Board meetings held five times a year. Decisions will be announced by email, unless otherwise requested.

If your request is urgent and necessitates a quick decision, please indicate this on the application. Foundation staff will contact you once they have received your application to discuss the urgency. After a decision has been made about your grant request, you will receive an email or a letter about the decision.
