The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation is accepting "electronic postcards" for the 2014-15 cycle of its Building Bridges Program.

Through the program, DDCF will award grants of up to $300,000 to nonprofits in support of efforts to increase public knowledge and understanding of contemporary Muslim societies through the arts or media-based experiences. The program will support projects that create current-day, immersive, interactive, collaborative, and/or engaging experiences tailored to the needs and interests of the target audience(s).

To be eligible, applicants must have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status; annual operating expenses greater than $250,000, of which at least $50,000 must be used for professional arts or media programming; and at least three years' experience providing arts and/or media-based programs. In addition, projects must take place within the United States.

Electronic postcards to notify the foundation of an organization's intent to submit a letter of interest must be received no later than June 27, 2014. Organizations will then be required to submit an LOI by August 15, 2014. Upon review, select organizations will be invited to submit full proposals during the week of September 29, 2014.

Informational webinars will be held for all applicants on Wednesday, July 16 and Wednesday, August 6, 2014. Applicants are encouraged to attend at least one webinar.
