The AMA Foundation is announcing an important addition to our grant application process. Beginning with the 2019-2020 grant cycle, submission of an online letter of intent (LOI) will be the first step for any organizations seeking to receive grant from the Foundation.

If deemed eligible, the organization representative will be able to complete the profile and submit their Letter of Intent.  Submission of the Letter of Intent does NOT guarantee an invitation to submit a complete application.
