Thank you for your interest in the John Lee Hooker Foundation. Because we are now receiving hundreds of grant requests each year from around the world, we are currently only funding about 10% of the grant requests that we receive. Most grant amounts are between $500 and $1500. Creative programs from grass roots organizations working with and for underrepresented and underprivileged children and youth take precedence. The John Lee Hooker Foundation does not make grants for capital campaigns, scholarships, individual trips or tours, video, music, television or film productions, fundraising or sporting events.
The first step in your application process is to call our office for a telephone screening of your grant project (404-300-9574) or email a one-page summary of your project to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include the following:
If your one page proposal is a project the John Lee Hooker Foundation would be interested in pursuing and evaluating more thoroughly, we will request additional information and a full application (see below). A site visit or meeting may be scheduled.
Three times each year, the John Lee Hooker Foundation Board of Directors will review final candidates for each funding cycle. The Board will select proposals for funding that most effectively address the mission of JLHF and issues the Board has given priority.
For further information please call us at 404-300-9574 or email us at email@example.com.
