Conn Memorial Foundation

Established over fifty years ago by businessman and philanthropist Fred K. Conn, the Conn Memorial Foundation seeks to continue the founder's legacy of compassion and giving to those in need in our community. The Foundation focuses on the most vulnerable of our citizens, our children.

The Foundation supports nonprofit social service and educational programs that serve at-risk children and their families in Hillsborough County.

Organizations which provide support to at-risk children and their families may submit a one page letter of intent for consideration. Applications are issued only upon invitation by the Grant Committee based on review of the letters of intent.

Letters of Intent Deadlines - January 1st for spring cycle and June 1st for fall cycle.

Funding Selection Criteria

The Conn Memorial Foundation does more than make grants. They offer their knowledge and experience to the community, organizations, and individuals in an attempt to grow the capacity of the nonprofit sector. Their investment in training and education of their partner agencies' boards and staffs is central to meeting their mission of service. Together they hope to change the world.
