How to Apply

The Wireless Foundation emphasizes wireless technology’s ability to enhance American communities through innovative programs. Our mission includes demonstrating new uses for wireless technology that improve people’s lives and recognizing ways that individuals and organizations have used wireless to benefit their communities.
The first step in applying for a grant from The Wireless Foundation is to determine if your organization and project meets The Foundation’s grant criteria.
Due to the small size of the Foundation staff, applicants are strongly discouraged from phoning during the application process.
After determining if your organization meets The Wireless Foundation’s criteria, you are welcome to submit an application along with a short concept paper for preliminary review. Applications are accepted throughout the year, January through October. If your application is approved, the organization will be invited to submit a full proposal.
