Grants to New York City and California nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for multi-generational programs. Funding is available for project support, general operating expenses, capital projects, and capacity building. Smaller grants are also offered to smaller organizations and larger organizations launching new intergenerational initiatives. The Eisner Foundation supports intergenerational programming in Los Angeles County and New York City.
The Foundation offers the following:
General Operating Grants for unrestricted support
Project Support Grants for specific projects or initiatives
Capacity-Building Grants for training or planning
Capital Project Grants for buying, constructing or renovating facilities
Tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations based in Los Angeles County or New York City, or doing work that benefits populations in Los Angeles County or New York City are eligible to apply.
The Eisner Foundation supports organizations in Los Angeles County and New York City’s five boroughs, but the application timeline differs for each location.
For Los Angeles County, applications are accepted and site visits are conducted on a rolling basis year-round.
For New York City, applications are due by 2/28/24.
Applications open at the beginning of January and are accepted through February, and site visits are conducted in the weeks following. The Eisner Foundation board meets quarterly for review and possible approval of applications, with all New York City applications reviewed at the meeting following the site visits.
The first step of the application process is the Letter of Inquiry (LOI). Successful LOIs will clearly and succinctly demonstrate how the applicant organization incorporates intergenerational programming into their work.
Grants typically range in size from $100,000 to $300,000.
The Foundation also offers Opportunity Grants of up to $25,000 for smaller organizations or larger organizations launching new intergenerational initiatives.
Term of Contract
Grants can be single or multi-year grants.
Opportunity Grants are available for one-year terms, and are renewable for small organizations. Large organizations with successful initiatives may apply for additional grant funds after one year, but cannot renew an Opportunity Grant.
