Prudential Foundation

The Prudential Foundation invests over $25 million each year in grants that support the revitalization of communities and support Prudential employees' community engagement efforts.

The Prudential Foundation focuses its efforts in the following locations:
  • Newark, NJ; and Hartford, CT. The Foundation makes significant investments through a combination of local and national partners to improve education, promote economic development, support the arts, and build the capacity of nonprofit organizations. The Newark Community Building Fund is a special initiative that supports grassroots organizations working to improve their neighborhoods and the quality of life of Newark residents.
  • Philadelphia, PA; New York, NY; Chicago, IL; and Los Angeles, CA. In these locations, the Foundation looks for opportunities to improve education and engage in economic development efforts.
  • Other cities. Dallas and Houston, TX; Dubuque, IA; Jacksonville, FL; Minneapolis, MN; Phoenix, AZ; and Scranton, PA. The Foundation focuses its efforts in education or economic development programs that provide opportunities for Prudential associates to be engaged.
To apply for funding, applicants must meet the specific criteria described in the Prudential Foundation Policies and Guidelines.

The Foundation receives and reviews proposals throughout the year. Grants that exceed $200,000 must be approved by the Board of Trustees, which meets three times a year, in February, June, and October. Staff responds to applicants within approximately 60 days.

It appears that this funding opportunity is open to our local BDPA chapters in Chicago, Dallas, Hartford, Houston, Los Angeles, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia and Twin Cities. I hope that one of these chapters takes advantage of this funding opportunity!

Do you know any Prudential employees that might be willing to help us out?
