The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations is currently seeking letters of inquiry (LOIs) for its Interfaith Leadership & Religious Literacy program.
Interfaith Leadership Grants emphasize the importance of preparing leaders to model meaningful engagement among different faith traditions. Such leaders include those who serve in clerical roles as well as in civic, academic, business, professional, and nonprofit sectors.
Religious Literacy Grants enhance public understanding of the religious beliefs and practices that shape America, both historically and in the present.
Eligible institutions may request planning grants that range from $25,000 up to $100,000, or comprehensive grants up to $250,000 – $300,000.
- Organizations applying through the Foundations’ Interfaith Leadership & Religious Literacy program must meet the following criteria to be competitive for a grant from the Foundations:
- The organization or institution must be closely linked to a private, degree granting institution of higher education or be a national organization with significant ties to private higher education.
- The most competitive proposals will:
- Focus on programs designed for college-aged students, graduate students, or career professionals;
- Emphasize interfaith curriculum development in theological schools, private colleges or universities, graduate schools, and programs with national impact;
- Further the understanding and programming around interfaith issues in palliative care; and
- Explore the interfaith issues embedded in our environmental challenges and solutions.
The Foundations award grants to eligible 501(c)(3) institutions whose work aligns with the Foundations’ Trustees’ philanthropic priorities. The Foundation does not provide grants to individuals. Grantee organizations must be based in and operate within the United States.
