Q:    How do you pronounce the name of the Foundation?

The pronunciation of the name Replogle is: REP – lo – gul.

Q:    When are decisions made?

The Board of Directors meets twice a year to make funding decisions, once in the autumn and once in the spring. The Board occasionally will defer a final decision on a request to a subsequent Board meeting even if an application has passed initial review; this delay is intended to ensure a thoughtful, informed decision.

Q:    Why can’t I access the online application system to submit a new funding inquiry?

The online application system is only accessible to new inquiries while LOIs are being accepted. Deadlines will be stated on our “First-Time Applicants” page, and the form on that page will allow you to receive an email when unsolicited LOIs are next being accepted.

Q:    Why can’t I find guidelines that fit my area of work?

We believe that the Foundation can be most effective by concentrating its resources in a few programmatic and/or geographic areas. Inevitably this means we cannot support many worthy projects outside our program interests.
The Foundation does not generally support:

  • Activities that have a specific religious purpose
  • Assistance for individuals
  • Attendance at or travel to conferences or costs related to conferences
  • Business (for-profit) organizations
  • Chemical dependency treatment
  • Endowments, except in very rare cases
  • Health services or policy
  • Services for seniors
  • Travel

Q:    Can I apply for a job, internship, or volunteer work at the Luther I. Replogle Foundation?

The Foundation operates with a staff of one. We appreciate the interest, but the Foundation does not accept resumes; does not offer volunteer or internship opportunities; and does not maintain employment or internship information about our grantees or other organizations.

Q:    Is the Luther I. Replogle Foundation operated by the Replogle Globe Company?

No. Although Mr. Replogle was the founder of the Replogle Globe Company, the Foundation is no-longer affiliated with the Company. As of 2014, The Replogle Globe Company is independent and employee-owned.
