Elton JOhn Aids Foundation – Open Calls for Proposals Beginning May 1

How to Request Funding 

EJAF Grantee: New York Harm Reduction Educators

The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) is pleased to announce an open call for proposals beginning on May 1, 2011.

Organizations must complete an online Letter of Intent (LOI) (link to online LOI submission here) by Wednesday, June 1, 2011. All LOIs will be reviewed by EJAF, and organizations approved to submit a full application will be notified by Friday July 15, with full on-line applications due by Thursday, September 1, 2011. All full applications will be reviewed by EJAF and funding decisions will be communicated to applicants in December 2011.

For this 2011 funding round, as in previous years, EJAF invites LOIs from any proposed project that is aligned with posted EJAF grant-making priorities, which include HIV programs focused on gay men’s health and rights, African American health and rights, youth mobilization for sexual health and rights, syringe access and harm reduction, prisoner re-entry, and scale-up of quality HIV programming in the Southern U.S., Puerto Rico, and in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Unsolicited proposals should request no more than $50,000 for activities during the calendar year of 2011.

Please also note the following parameters for all applicants and funding requests:

• EJAF will generally fund only one proposal per organization.
• EJAF will not fund grants to individuals or for-profit institutions, conferences or meetings, or infrastructure costs.
• Any charitable (not-for-profit) organization located in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, and Central and South America may apply for funding by the Elton John AIDS Foundation. (Potential applicants in Africa, Asia, and Europe can look to our sister Foundation in the UK.)
