Letters of Inquiry, Grant Applications & Grant Reports

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the A. V. Hunter Trust is operating remotely.  The office is closed and all travel has been cancelled until future notice.  Any updates will be posted on our website, so please check the home page occasionally for the latest information.


For those organizations that were funded in 2020, all grant application and report deadlines have not changed.  Proposal reviews and grant distributions are remaining on schedule.  If your organization was not funded in 2020, please hold any inquiries regarding eligibility until after the office reopens.


Thank you for your patience as we work through this together. 

PLEASE NOTE:  The A.V. Hunter Trust is now only accepting Letters of Inquiry (LOI), Grant Applications, and Grant Reports online.  Please follow the instructions below.

Organizations Not Funded in 2020

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to accept Letters of Inquiry at this time.  We will resume this process as soon as possible.  Please check this page for updated information going forward.

Organizations Funded in 2020

Step 1:

In your grant award letter, you received an access code along with the date of your specific application deadline.  The application will be open online eight weeks prior to the grant deadline.

Step 2:

Use this link to the Logon Page and follow the "User Instructions."  Do not create a new account for your organization!  If this will be your first time submitting a grant on behalf of your organization, please call us and we can assist you with accessing the existing account.

Step 3:

The grant application and grant report are one document.  Please complete all required fields and submit by your assigned application deadline.  If the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, the grant application and report are due on the next business day.

Step 4:

Please use this template as an attachment to the application to provide information on your Major Contributors for the last two years.  Make sure to include any grants from the A. V. Hunter Trust:  Major Contributors Template

Tips for Applying Online


Please follow the "User Instructions" for a step by step guide to registering and applying for grants.  If you forget your password, you can retrieve it from the Logon Page.


Download the question list prior to completing the online application.  This will outline the information you need to gather prior to starting your application.


We recommend that you complete your answers to the questions in a separate Word document, then cut and paste the text into the fields online.  This will allow you to check for spelling errors prior to submitting your grant.  The online application does not have this function.


The character count limits in the text boxes are only limits.  You are not required to use all of the space provided.

We encourage you to contact the A.V. Hunter Trust's office at news@avhuntertrust.org with any questions you have regarding the grant application process.
