The Foundation makes grants to institutions and organizations, not to individuals.  All grants result from invitations issued by the Foundation to institutions with which staff have engaged in preliminary exchanges.  We are unable to consider uninvited proposals; however, staff welcome letters of inquiry regarding ideas that fall within the program and review them throughout the year.  Please do not send inquiries about possibilities for support to more than one Foundation program.  Before sending any material, send a brief inquiry by email to

Grantmaking Policies and Guidelines
