Responsive Grantmaking is Archstone Foundation’s strategy to address the emerging and unmet needs of California’s diverse aging population, and those who serve them. It provides a platform for the Foundation to offer direct service support, important local services, and to address developing programmatic and policy-related issues. Historically, the Foundation has used Responsive Grantmaking to incubate, contemplate, and raise awareness of important issues in the field of aging, while engaging partners who might also support these issues.
The Foundation accepts unsolicited Letters of Inquiry (LOI) on an ongoing basis through its Responsive Grantmaking strategy. After reviewing LOIs, and determining if the request falls within its funding priorities, the Foundation may invite an organization to submit a Full Proposal for funding consideration. LOIs and Full Proposals are reviewed quarterly.
