In general, the grant making of the Annie E. Casey Foundation is limited to initiatives in the United States that have significant potential to demonstrate innovative policy, service delivery, and community supports for disadvantaged children and families. Most grantees have been invited by the Foundation to participate in these projects.
We do not seek, nor often fund, unsolicited grant applications. The Foundation’s approach to grant making focuses on making multi-year, multi-site commitments that enable us to invest in long-term strategies and partnerships that strengthen families and communities. In any given year, we have limited resources to fund additional, unsolicited proposals.
