We recommend having one account per organization. Ensure that any other staff who need to access the application also have access to this email account and password.

  • Enter your account ID and password to login
  • If you don't remember your password, click on the Forgot Password? link and follow the prompts
  • To transfer your organization's account, please contact Heather Craig at (952) 992-3321 or [email protected].

Step Three – Complete the Eligibility Quiz and Begin Your Application

After signing in or creating your account, you will be brought to an eligibility quiz. If you are eligible to apply for funding, you will be directed to the application. If you don't pass the quiz, please contact the Foundation to verify you qualify for funding.

We recommend that you save your work periodically by clicking the "Save and Finish Later" link at the bottom of the page. Once you do this you will be brought to your account homepage.

When you want to re-access your application after saving or logging back into the system, simply select it from the In Progress Application on your Account Homepage. This is how you will access it any time you logout and return to keep working.

Helpful Tip 

If your computer has been idle for more than 30 minutes while you are in the process of completing your application, the application will time out and you will lose your information.

We recommend you click on Save and Finish Later periodically at the bottom of each page of your application. This action will save your progress at each step and prevent you from losing any of your work.
