Grants for Non-profit organizations in the US

Deadline: 10-Nov-21

The Max and Victoria Dreyfus Foundation is pleased to announce Grants for IRS-qualified non-profit organizations that aim to support organizations and programs located within the United States.

The Foundation aims to support organizations and programs for which a relatively small amount of funding might make a large difference. The Foundation will consider requests to support museums, cultural and performing arts programs; schools and hospitals; educational, skills-training and other programs for youth, seniors, and persons with disabilities; environmental and wildlife protection activities; and other community-based organizations and programs.

The Foundation can also consider requests for organizations based in the United States but whose programming takes place abroad, as well as requests from organizations located in U.S. Territories.

Their application requires two summaries:

One of your organization’s purpose and the population it serves.
One regarding how potential funding would be utilized and the population it might serve. Because the Foundation receives a large number of requests in relation to their size, these summaries act as your “elevator pitch,” providing the basis for further examination of the attached letter of request.
Your summaries should be straightforward and concise. Their Directors should have a basic understanding of your organization’s purpose, service population, and programming based solely on these summaries- independent of your three-page letter of request

Funding Information

Awards typically range from $1,000 to $20,000. The Foundation cannot make grants to individuals.
The Foundation does not recommend a specific amount for first-time, or any other, applicant. However. They do expect the requested amount fall within their typical giving range ($1,000-$20,000) and relate sensibly to the grants’ intended purpose, as well as the organization’s budget/s.
Note: Be aware that in an effort to support as many worthwhile organizations and programs as possible, the Foundation may choose to award an amount less than the amount requested by an organization.
