David Rockefeller Fund


What are the Fund’s primary grantmaking interests?

The Fund provides a limited number of grants each year to support U.S.-based, tax-exempt non-profit organizations engaged in efforts that strongly align with our Arts, Justice, and Climate program goals. The Fund does not make grants to: hyper-local initiatives without a broader national component; afterschool, summer, and other out-of-school time programs for youth; individual museum and/or art gallery exhibitions, films, concerts/concert series, or theatrical productions; diversion and re-entry programs. Further, the Fund does not make grants to individuals, scholarships, international programs, or for-profit businesses.

For additional information about the Fund’s grantmaking priorities, please see Programs.

How can my organization apply for a grant?

We will review brief 1–2-page letters of inquiry related to our program priorities on a rolling basis throughout the year. Please submit all LOIs through our online portal.

Kindly note that as a small staff, we unfortunately do not have the capacity to schedule conversations about grant ideas prior to letter of inquiry submissions.
