Criteria of Submission

The LOI Instructions explain the content behind the questions in the LOI Application Form. The LOI Application includes questions regarding the purpose, framework, approach, assumptions, and budget of your project. You must complete the online LOI submission form and attach your completed LOI Application Form in order for the foundation to process your request. Once you've submitted your LOI, you will receive a confirmation that we have received it. Your LOI will be reviewed and you should generally receive a decision regarding whether it has been accepted within ten to twelve weeks of receipt of your application. Global Health program letters of inquiry are reviewed on a continuous basis throughout the year.
