Applying for a grant of any type requires you to fill out our online application form which is available by registering your organization on the Hubbell-Waterman Foundation online grants system. Please do not submit paper applications as they will not be processed.
Since 2018, the Hubbell-Waterman Foundation has accepted applications through a new online grant system called Foundant, which is also used by many other local grantmakers. The Quad Cities Community Foundation provides grantmaking services to the Hubbell-Waterman Foundation by managing the online grant system and providing technical support to applicants. All review and decisions will continue to be made by the trustees of the Hubbell-Waterman Foundation.

The first time your organization applies for a grant in the new Hubbell-Waterman Foundation online grants system, you must register your organization. To register, click the Apply Online button on the left side of this page. This will take you to the online grants system.
On the Login page, enter your organization and personal information. Your account will be created immediately when you have finished registration, and you can then start an application.
If your organization applied for a grant in 2018, you are already registered in the online grants system. Click the Apply Online button on the left side of this page, enter your username (email address) and password, and you will be logged in. If you have forgotten your password, use the Forgot your Password link on the login page to reset it.
Once logged in, you will be able to see past grant applications and start a new grant application. You can save and return to the application as many times as you need to until you hit Submit. Scanned documents accompanying the application must be in .doc, .docx, or .pdf formats.
September 1 of each year is our deadline for you to completely and accurately fill out and submit your grant application. You will receive an automatic email to confirm that your application has been submitted. Late or incomplete applications may not be resubmitted until the following year’s application cycle.
Our response to all applications placed on the annual agenda will be electronically transmitted to the applicant within two weeks of final action by the trustees of the Foundation.
