Before Submitting an Application

The McGregor Fund has transitioned to an on-line application platform. Applications are no longer being accepted as email or hard-copy submissions. The on-line application is not open to the public.

After reviewing the Fund’s grantmaking guidelines and application procedures, applicants can submit the General Inquiry Form (click here for link to form). Applicants can also email or call Heidi Alcock at or 313.963.3495 to explore the organization’s eligibility for grant consideration, the purpose of the prospective grant proposal, and the plans and budget for both implementation and evaluation.

Timing and Decision Process

All grant decisions are the responsibility of the Board of Trustees. Trustee meetings are scheduled four times per year, generally in March, June, September and December. Grant requests may be submitted at any time, but requests typically take up to three months for staff review. Therefore, applicants are encouraged to submit proposals well in advance of the Trustee meeting at which they wish their proposal be considered.
