The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation's Redesigned Website

Welcome to the Foundation's redesigned website.

Welcome to The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation's redesigned website, which describes the Foundation's ongoing commitment to the humanities, the arts, and higher education.  With its new features and added resources, the site also emphasizes ease of use and transparency.

In the website, you will find an executive summary of our new strategic plan for programs, updated descriptions of realigned program areas, and our current and future grantmaking priorities.  We have added a searchable database of all grants awarded since the Foundation's establishment in 1969.  You will also find a news and publications section that highlights the current work of the Foundation and of our grantees.

The new site also includes our grantmaking policies and guidelines. Those seeking grants are invited to read our program descriptions carefully before submitting an initial letter of inquiry.  Many of the resources available on our previous site are also still available, including our annual reports, 990PF tax returns, and information about our Board of Trustees, staff, and history.

We hope you will find this new website informative and useful, and we welcome your feedback and questions.

Earl Lewis, President
