Select the Apply button on the grant application page to create a new application or log in to an existing grant application. Once you start an application, you can save and log out of the application and log back in at any time for up to three months. Incomplete applications are purged from the system three months following the original creation date.

Fluor uses Blackbaud GIFTS© (GIFTS) software for our online application process. GIFTS does not allow users to work in more than one application at a time, even if the applications are for different grantors. GIFTS allows you to save only one application if multiple applications are open. The GIFTS online application portal is Grantrequest.com. Please log out of any other applications using this software prior to beginning or editing your application with Fluor.

Step 3: Complete the Application.

In order to complete the application it is essential that you reference the What You Will Need to Apply section of this page before getting started. This section will help applicants prepare all the necessary information required for Fluor’s review process. Your application will not be considered complete unless all of the required documentation has been provided. Once your application has been submitted you will not have an opportunity to make changes or include additional attachments.

Step 4: Fluor Review Process

Enable your email account to receive automated emails from community.relations@fluor.com. After submitting your application, Fluor will respond via email to confirm receipt of the grant application.

Applicants may submit one grant application per calendar year, whether successful in receiving a grant or not.
