24 APRIL 2019 / Hiatus Extension in Submitting New Grant Requests

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 conversations between Program Officers at the Foundation, our Board of Directors, the prospective grantees, and other external partners. Giving each-and-every one of these conversations the time it deserves is critical to our mission.

SNF is reassessing its internal grant review processes. To ensure that we are able to give each grant request the full care and attention it deserves, we have paused the submission of new requests until the completion of the reassessment. The pause, initially announced through June 30, 2019, will continue at least until September 30, 2019. During the hiatus, SNF is continuing the review of grant requests submitted before the pause to the open application process, and ongoing SNF initiatives are progressing uninterrupted.

We look forward to accepting new grant requests, engaging with new partners, and reengaging with past partners once we complete the reassessment process. In the meantime, we share our immense appreciation for our grantee partners and the important and impactful work they do every day!
