Submitting Requests for Charitable Contributions
Requests for support submitted outside of this process should be made well in advance of the proposed program, event or activity (minimum of 90 days) to ensure adequate time for internal processing, review and response. Amicus’ annual budget preparations begin early in the third quarter of each year; please note that this is the best time to submit requests for support for the entire following calendar year.
