Letter of Inquiry

Our 2020 LOI submission is over.  The timeline for 2021 consideration is currently undetermined.  We recognize that your time is valuable, so please review our funding priorities closely before submitting a Letter of Inquiry (LOI).

Once you have determined that your organization is eligible, you must first send a letter of inquiry (LOI). The subject line of your LOI email must contain the name of the organization and country in which your project is located. If we determine that your project is a good fit with ABSF priorities, we will contact you within 1 month via email and/or phone with further questions and next steps.
