Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grants are made to tax-exempt organizations which have received a ruling by the Internal Revenue Service that they are organizations described in Section 501 (c) (3) and classified in Section 509 (a) (1), (2), or (3) of the Internal Revenue Code (publicly supported organizations and their affiliates).

Consideration will be given to applications from institutions and agencies operating in the field of health, welfare, education, cultural activities and civic affairs, primarily serving the metropolitan areas of Chicago, New York (five boroughs of NYC only), and Michigan City, Indiana.

- Organizations not located in nor directly serving the defined areas
- National health, welfare, or education agencies, institutions or funds.
- Scholarships, fellowships, loans, student aid and appeals from individuals.
- Medical and scientific research.
- Private elementary and secondary schools, colleges, universities, professional schools and trade organizations.
- Films, program advertising, conferences, seminars, benefits and fundraising costs.
- Start-up organizations, start-up programs, emergency funds, and deficit financing.
- Lobbying-related or legislative activities.
- Endowment funds and intermediary organizations.

Pre-Application Information:

In advance of submitting a funding request for your organization, a telephone call is suggested to determine if the organization seeking to apply for a grant falls within the current General Policy of the Foundation.

If you believe that your organization’s mission and programs are consistent with the Foundation’s interests then please complete the Funding Inquiry, which are accepted all year long.

If the organization falls within the Foundations guidelines and is of interest to the Grants Advisory Committee you will be asked to complete a full application. Applications are initiated by the Foundation.

The Foundation Board meets twice per year. For the Spring meeting, completed proposals must be received before February 1 and for the Fall meeting, before August 1.

Organizations that are approved for a grant will receive the funds approximately six weeks after the Directors meet.

The Foundation will make every effort to inform applicants promptly if their proposal will not be successful. The Foundation asks applicants to wait at least one year before reapplying, should the proposal be declined.
