Tips for Submitting Online

Getting Started. If you are a new applicant to the Butler Family Foundation, please follow the link to our online application system, click the “Create New Account” button, and provide the requested information.
Creating an Application. To create an application, log in to the system, find the heading marked "Requests" on the left side of the screen, and click the link marked "Apply" underneath it. Then, click the name of the grants program to which you are applying—"Community Grants" or "Special Projects Grants." If you are applying for an Invited Grant, see your letter of invitation for special instructions.
Returning to an Application. You do not need to complete your application in one session. But be sure to click the “Save Application” button before you log off.
Uploading Documents. You will be required to upload certain documents for your letter of intent or application. Only one document can be uploaded per question.
Required Information. Required items are marked with an asterisk. You will not be able to submit an application or letter of intent without completing all required fields. If a field does not apply to your application and is not marked with an asterisk, you may leave it blank.
Submitting an Application. When you have completed and reviewed your application or letter of intent, click the "Submit Application" button to forward it for funding consideration. Once an application or letter of intent is submitted, it may be viewed but not edited.

Applications for Community Grants

Applications for Community Grants are generally accepted between December and April. Applications from organizations working in arts or environment will be accepted in 2022.
