Each year, the Blaustein, Hirschhorn and Rosenberg foundations award over 450 grants totaling $13 million across a variety of program areas. Before submitting a request, we urge you to read about their priorities and guidelines in The Foundations and Frequently Asked Questions sections of this website.
We want our application process to be as straightforward as possible. If you believe that your organization and program(s) are a fit with the priorities of one or more of the foundations in the Blaustein Philanthropic Group, please submit a proposal including the information outlined under Proposal Guidelines. If you have questions about whether your organization is a fit, please contact the appropriate Program Officer or Executive Director by email or phone (see Contact Us). If you have already prepared a proposal describing your organization and program, you may send it to us for consideration.
Grantees must be nonprofit organizations with tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and organized and operated for charitable purposes. Organizations with fiscal sponsors are also eligible to apply.
Each foundation has a different set of geographic priorities. The information provided on each foundation describes its program areas, funding priorities and geographic focus. To view this information in summary form, please refer to the Program Areas index.
