Grant Application Portal
We recently adopted a new grant portal called GranteeView for our grantmaking. The first time you use GranteeView, you will be required to register to become a grant administrator for your organization to apply for grants, track your application status, view payment history and more. Your organization may have multiple registered grant administrators. Each person in your organization must create their own account to access GranteeView.
If you are new to GranteeView, please register to become a grant administrator for your organization to apply for grants, track your application status, view payment history and more. Download registration instructions.
To begin, create a grant administrator account. Once you have registered, you will be able to connect to your organization’s profile. You will receive monthly enews and emails about grant opportunities from the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation and our partner foundations. You may opt out at any time using the unsubscribe link in every email.
