Subject: Child Welfare | Deadline: Dec. 31, 2014
The Ross Foundation provides direct aid and assistance to vulnerable children, including those who are ill, orphaned, disabled, injured, disfigured, abused and malnourished or have limited access to education. We are looking for small grassroots projects that we can fully fund or nearly fully fund with the small grants that we make. The Ross Foundation is less interested in larger projects or capital campaigns that are better left to larger foundations and organizations.
Funder: Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation
Eligibility: The Ross Foundation provides financial assistance to organizations that are qualified under the laws of the United States Department of the Treasury as a charitable organization for projects that directly benefit vulnerable children. The foundation typically does not fund day-to-day operations, individuals, conferences, day care or public education. Water projects are limited to schools, orphanages and medical centers where children predominate.
Amount: Generally $1,000 - $15,000. Larger grants are made occasionally.
