The L.B. Research and Education Foundation supports nonprofit organizations throughout the United States. The Foundation provides grants ranging from $10,000 to $75,000 to organizations that address one of the following areas: In the Education category, the focus is on supporting inventive approaches that boost engagement and achievement for populations that face education opportunity gaps tied to poverty, gender, race/ethnicity, trauma, etc. The Foundation values educational approaches that foster independent and critical thinking, activate creativity, and/or offer alternatives to traditional education. Project ideas serving any age group, from early childhood through postsecondary and vocational education are considered. In the Health category, the focus is on addressing health issues that are prevalent among vulnerable populations who face barriers to accessing adequate care.
The Foundation has a particular interest in supporting efforts that remove the stigma of mental illness and that increase the awareness of the prevalence of these issues, especially in underserved populations. Priority in both categories is given to proposals that have a specific research or dissemination mechanism in place for the community solution that could lead to positive changes on a regional, national, or global scale.
Interested organizations are invited to email a 400 word or less description of their funding idea to firstname.lastname@example.org
