Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofits for programs focusing on conservation of the world's oceans. LOIs are due January 8, 2018. Funding is also available to Delaware, Illinois, Ohio, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. nonprofits in eligible areas for performing arts programs and to Chicago, Illinois organizations to promote social causes.

Priorities and geographic focuses for each of the three program areas are outlined below.

Performing Arts:

The goal of the Performing Arts program is to support the presentation and propagation of performing arts events, focusing on classical music and theater. Grantee organizations include performers, presenters (including broadcasters) and educators. Grants are currently being offered to the Chicago area, Cleveland, Detroit, and the Mid-Atlantic Region (from Washington, D.C. north to Philadelphia, PA).

Social Causes:

The goal of the Foundation’s grant making in Social Causes is to support efforts to address the root causes of poverty and inequality, particularly in urban areas. Priority will be given to programs that emphasize evidence-based early intervention and prevention approaches. The Foundation seeks to support efforts designed to help alter the life trajectories of socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals and families.

Specific areas of interest include early childhood education, teenage pregnancy prevention, school completion for at-risk youth, workforce preparedness, and African-American male achievement. Although not limited exclusively to Chicago, grant making in Social Causes will focus on the Chicago area.


The Foundation’s Conservation grant making focuses primarily upon issues of ocean conservation. Priorities within Conservation are:
- Supporting the creation of Marine Protected Areas
- Encouraging sustainable fisheries management
- Eliminating illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing
- Conserving the world’s shark and ray species
- Limiting plastics pollution and other ocean debris
- Preserving coral species and ecosystems

Grant requests for other types of ocean-related conservation efforts may be considered on a limited basis.

Within the above focus areas, funding will be provided for the following three types of grant requests:

General Operating Support - This is the most flexible type of grant. Funds may be applied in any manner in which the organization sees fit, subject to its mission.

Program/Project Grants - These grants are targeted to a specific program or goal. Applicants must submit a program budget and narrative to support their applications.

Education - Education grants support programs which disseminate information crucial to the organization’s mission. They may include, but are not necessarily limited to, lectures, demonstrations, workshops, guided tours, exhibitions, and distribution of printed or online materials.
