Thoughtful partnerships and conversations with current, past, and prospective grantees are the heart of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s work.
The review of new grant requests evolves over the course of months through extensive conversation between Program Officers at the Foundation, our Board of Directors, the organization requesting the grant, and other external partners. Giving each and every one of these conversations the time it deserves is critical to our mission.
SNF will be reassessing and updating our internal grant review processes. To ensure that we are able to give each grant request received, each conversation undertaken, and each partner engaged the full care and attention they are due, we are pausing the submission of new grant requests while this process takes place. Until at least June 30th, 2019, SNF will take a hiatus in receiving new grant requests. During this period, review of grant requests already submitted will continue, and ongoing SNF initiatives will continue to move forward. Please read the full announcement regarding grant requests for projects in Greece here and for projects elsewhere around the world here.
We look forward to accepting new grant requests, engaging with new partners, and reengaging with past partners once this update is complete. In the meantime, we share our immense appreciation for our grantee partners and the important and impactful work they do every day!
