The application process is conducted online. The online applications will collect a variety of information to enable the Marisla Board to make their funding decisions. The Marisla Foundation board makes funding decisions on a quarterly basis. Applications may be completed online at any time within the two month windows. It operates its grantmaking program with two full-time staff. Of the hundreds of proposals received each year, only a small percentage of them receive funding. The Foundation strongly discourages the submission of multiple applications from one organization. This includes chapters or field offices. The Foundation also will not review more than one application per year (any twelve-month period) from any organization, including chapters and field offices.
