How to Apply

The Rose Hills Foundation is a responsive grantmaker and we accept applications any time. There are no deadlines or grantmaking cycles. If after reviewing our Funding Guidelines and FAQs you believe your organization fits within the Foundation’s current funding priorities and interests, please follow the login instructions below.

Please note that all grantees, whether new or returning, are required to take a short quiz to ensure eligibility to receive grants from the Foundation. If the Foundation determines from the eligibility quiz that the request fits within the Foundation’s current funding priorities and interests, the organization will be provided with instructions to prepare and submit an online application.

From time to time, the Trustees may elect to support non-profit organizations of special interest which are within the Foundation’s broad charter. Grants to large medical institutions, K-12 schools, private, independent colleges and universities in California, Cal State Universities, or other higher education institutions, are initiated by the Trustees. Unsolicited proposals from these types of organizations are not accepted.

New Grantees

Thank you for considering the Foundation as a potential partner.

Please contact a member of the program staff if you have any questions about these policies. Please note that contact with the Foundation Board of Trustees is strongly discouraged.
