Application Process

  1. Complete letter of inquiry
  2. After reviewing your organization's letter of inquiry, we will determine if your request meets the necessary requirements for an application
  3. An application will be emailed to you based on our review of your letter of inquiry
  4. Upon completion of your letter of inquiry, you can either mail or email it into the Make It Better Foundation
  5. The foundation's board will review your application at the next quarterly board meeting and determine if your organization is approved for funding


Step 1: Letter of Inquiry

Greater consideration will be given to applications from 501(c)(3) nonprofit, charitable or educational organizations that have missions which align with one of our three pillars of health/wellness, hunger and youth education. If your organization has already received funding from our foundation, you must wait a minimum of one year before submitting another application.

If you believe your organization is eligible, we encourage you to begin by submitting a letter of inquiry that includes:

      • Name and address of your organization
      • Contact name and email address

      • Geographic area you serve (must be within 30 miles of a Cousins Subs location)
      • Your mission    
      • Nonprofit status (are you a 501 (c)(3)?)
      • Which of our three pillars your organization serves
      • Brief description of your organization's programs and services
      • Brief explanation of how grant funds will be used

You may mail you letter of inquiry to:
Cousins Subs
C/O Make It Better Foundation
N83 W13400 Leon Road
Menomonee Falls, WI 53051

Or you may email it to: with letter of inquiry in the subject line

After a determination is made, a prompt reply will be emailed. If we invite you to submit a full grant application, please know that the invitation does not constitute a guarantee that your grant will be approved for funding.
