Application Procedures

Please Note: The Fuller Foundation’s application process will change effective with our June 15, 2017 deadline. All applicants must submit applications on-line through GMA Foundations.  The Fuller Foundation will be moving its offices to GMA Foundations, effective January 1, 2018.  You may begin your application as of May 1, 2017.

Online Proposal Submission Instructions

Prior to submitting a proposal through the Fuller Foundation’s online grants system, applicants need to complete a one-time registration. You will need to supply your contact information and create a password to log in to the system. The foundation prefers that the primary contact person complete the registration.

If you have not yet submitted an online application through the GMA Foundations application process, you may register at any time after May 1, 2017.  After you log in, enter the access code “fuller” in the box labeled “Access Code.” Then click the “Fuller Foundation” link to start your new application.  Be sure to keep the password you will create where you or others in your organization can find it again for future use.

If you have previously registered and submitted an online application to any GMA-affiliated foundation, use the same username and password – but be sure to enter the access code, “fuller” ” for this submission.

Important: If you want to exit your application before it is complete, click on “Save as Draft” at the bottom of the screen. You can then come back later and continue to work on your application by signing in with your password and clicking on the link for your draft. There is also a “print packet” button if you wish to create a printable document for internal review. When your application is complete and you are ready to submit it to the Fuller Foundation for review, click the “submit” button. After clicking submit, a new screen will appear confirming receipt of your application.

All application materials must be received by midnight on the day of the deadline – but please note that no one will be available to answer questions about this process after 4pm. Should you need assistance with the online proposal submission, please contact Liz Drewry at 617-391-3094 or send an email to online@gmafoundations.com.

All materials for the proposal must be attached to the online submission; please do not send any items separately by email or mail.

 On May 1st, 2017 or later, you can click here to begin your application to the Fuller Foundation.
