Philanthropy Online is a database that enables nonprofits to apply for grants online, showcase their organization and highlight specific programs for donors and advisers. All agencies applying for grants are required to create a profile on POL. Only 501(c)(3) organizations that serve in the Aurora Health Care service area are eligible.

To complete a profile:

  1. If you are a first-time applicant, please fill out the POL New User Registration form. You will receive your username and password within five business days.
  2. Attach an electronic copy of your most recent 990 form and your federal tax determination letter with the form. Without these documents, your profile will not be reviewed and you will not be able to apply for a grant. 
  3. Log in to POL using your username and password. Follow the instructions in the guide.

Once the Aurora Health Care Better Together Fund Committee has reviewed your profile, it will be made visible on the website and you will be able to complete the online letter of inquiry and/or grant application.
