New York Life Foundation

The New York Life Foundation is a funding source that may be of interest to your nonprofit organization.

Areas of Interest
Proposals must fall within the Foundation’s Nurturing the Children focus, which includes educational enhancement, mentoring children, creating safe places to learn and grow and childhood bereavement. Preference is given to requests that provide an opportunity for volunteer involvement on the part of New York Life agents, employees and retirees.

Grants are made only to private, nonprofit organizations, which have tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and which are not private foundations. The Foundation does not make grants to individuals or government agencies.

Geographic Restrictions:
The Foundation funds local projects in New York City and Westchester County, New York. The Foundation also considers multi-site projects implemented by national organizations. These projects must serve two or more of the following locations: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Clinton, NJ, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Edison, NJ, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Kansas City, KS, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, Parsippany, NJ, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, OR, Richmond, VA, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa, Tucson, Washington, DC, Waukegan, IL, and Westwood, MA.

Review and Evaluation
All requests are screened, researched and evaluated by the Foundation’s staff to determine general eligibility, conformity to grant guidelines and relationship to current Foundation programs and priorities.

If, after the initial screening, the Foundation is interested in a proposal, they will contact the applicant for additional information, further discussion, and a site visit. The Foundation’s Board of Directors makes the final decisions on funding requests.

If a grant is made, the grantee must keep the Foundation informed and updated on its activities throughout the grant cycle by providing progress reports. Reporting requirements will be outlined in the Foundation’s award letter.

Application Procedure
Proposals from organizations are accepted and reviewed on a continuous basis during the calendar year. All requests must be submitted online.
