The Issachar Fund (TIF) assists select organizations in obtaining funds for projects that are consistent with our mission and purposes. TIF invites grant proposals and makes funding recommendations on a competitive basis to a donor advised fund (DAF). We recommend grants only after an applicants’ tax-exempt status has been verified and the grant application has been thoroughly vetted.
If you are an organization or individual working in one of our areas of inquiry and are seeking support for your work, please refer to our calendar for deadlines to submit a Letter of Inquiry. On occasion, TIF will also run Requests for Proposals (RFP) related to one or more of our Areas of Inquiry. RFP announcements will be on the TIF website.
If the Foundation approves your Letter of Inquiry, we will ask for a more detailed Full Proposal.
Here are a few examples of the kinds of projects and organizations we have recommended for funding:
