The Thoma Foundation accepts Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) on a rolling basis from nonprofit organizations and individuals. We fund projects aligned with our mission to challenge and shift perceptions, spark creativity, and connect people across cultures through the arts. The Foundation values long-term relationships with grantees and encourages you to connect with us before submitting your inquiry.

You may submit an LOI to Include your name, contact information, a brief description of your organization, a summary of your idea or project, and a project timeline.

If we are interested in learning more about your project, you will hear from us within 30 days with an invitation to submit a Complete Proposal. The Foundation reviews Complete Proposals quarterly on March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31. We strive to respond within 60 days following review dates.
