A Letter of Inquiry (LOI) is the first step in the process of applying for a grant, to be followed by a full application only upon invitation from the Community Benefit department. The LOI guidelines will assess the potential fit between your organization’s objectives and Kaiser Permanente’s funding priorities, and will give instructions on how to complete and submit an LOI.
