Step 2: Create Your Online Account
To apply for a grant or view grants you've received in the past, you must have an organization account in the system, with logon credentials (email and password).
If your organization has never applied for a DCFSL grant, you will need to create an organization account. See the procedures listed below.
If your organization has an account and you know the logon credentials, proceed to the Grant Application page where there is a logon link. If you've forgotten your password, there is a system prompt to assist you with a reset.
- If your organization received grants previously but you are unaware of the account information, DO NOT create a new account. Contact our office at
314-733-6500 so a staff member can provide logon credentials if an account already exists.
Online Account Creation Process
The online account creation process has four sections and is straightforward; however, in some cases it may be more complex when certain factors apply.
The Applicant's individual information (user contact info)
Executive Officer contact information
Creating your individual user password
Each individual user is linked to a single organization through a unique email address. If you are submitting applications for multiple organizations, each organization will need to have its own registered account and you will need to use a different email address for each organization. The same goes for multiple individuals at one organization having login access to their organization's account. Each individual within an organization must use a unique email address to access that organization's account (i.e., two people from the same organization cannot both use that organization's info@ general email address). The system will only accept an email address once.
When a fiscal sponsor is used for a grant application, the individual who registers the organization should be affiliated with the sponsored project or organization rather than the fiscal sponsor organization.
During the organization account creation process, you cannot save partial information; therefore, you should gather all required information before beginning the registration process.
Your email address as listed under your user account will be the first part of your logon credentials; the password you create is the second.
Updating Account Contact Information
To update your user contact information, logon and click your name at the top right corner of the screen and select "Edit Profile" from the drop-down menu. To update the information for your organization or its chief executive officer, contact the Foundation staff at 314-733-6500.
