Since its inception in 2012, Infinite Hero Foundation has awarded nearly $3 million dollars in funding and support to fifteen different veteran service organizations offering innovative and effective programs or treatments for service-related mental and physical injuries.
Infinite Hero will be accepting letters of interest from qualified 501c3 organizations beginning January 2, 2017 until Friday, March 31, 2017 in consideration for the 2017 grant cycle. If you have applied in previous years but were not selected to move forward in the process, please consider setting up a review call prior to submission, as our grant parameters have not changed.
Upon review, if your program is selected to move forward in the grant process, you will be notified no later than Friday, May 26, 2017 with an invitation to complete a formal grant application.
Grant applications will be due in full, and in the requested format, no later than Friday, June 30, 2017.
Upon review by the grant committee, you may be asked to provide additional information or a site visit.
The Infinite Hero Board of Directors, on or about September 25, 2017, will determine grants and funds will be distributed upon receipt of an executed grant agreement on or about Veterans Day, November 11, 2017.
Program grants between $25,000 to $100,000 per cycle, per year will be considered based on need and an approved budget. Infinite Hero funds must be applied directly to program costs and cannot be used for fundraising or administrative overhead.
