Annie E. Casey Foundation

In general, the grant-making of the Annie E. Casey Foundation is limited to initiatives that have significant potential to demonstrate innovative policy, service delivery, and community supports for children and families. Most grantees have been invited by the Foundation to participate in these projects.

The Foundation does not make grants to individuals, nor does it provide grants for capital projects, medical research, direct services (with the exception of Baltimore City) or work outside the United States. Much of its current funding is targeted to our Making Connections Initiative and its 22 sites. The Foundation annually declines a very high percentage of otherwise worthy proposals that do not meet these guidelines.

Organizations wishing to send a proposal to the Foundation should submit a letter of no more than three typewritten pages describing the organization, its programs, the amount of funds requested, and a brief explanation of how the proposed work fits within the mission of the Annie E. Casey Foundation. There are no submission deadlines. Please do not send video tapes, computer disks, binders, or other bulky materials. Foundation staff members will review the material and reply in writing after approximately 30 days.

Please take a moment to visit the AEC Foundation website to determine if this is a grant opportunity that your chapter would like to apply for in conjunction with BETF. We operate on a first-come; first-served basis. Please respond as soon as you've had a chance to review the AEC Foundation website.
