Charles A. Frueauff Foundation
Grants of up to $10,000 to USA nonprofits in multiple States for programs in the areas of higher education; human services, including those battling poverty-related problems; and health-related initiatives. The LOI deadline is July 1, 2017. Eligible States include Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, Texas, and Virginia.
Education: Funding is provided to support colleges and universities. In addition to scholarship funding, CAFF has provided grants for technology and software upgrades and other infrastructure assistance. CAF is also meeting the challenge of the changing educational environment by contributing to a range of requests. Service learning, persons leaving welfare, students preparing for employment in non-profit agencies, and activities for at-risk youth are examples. Although the Frueauff Foundation rarely makes large grants, funds have been given to support building campaigns and major fund drives. In most instances, these grants are used to meet challenges from other foundations.
Human Services: The enormous problems facing America’s young people, the economic conditions in cities, and the numerous issues confronting families are all topics of concern to the Foundation. Welfare-to-Work programs, creative approaches to working with at-risk youth, inadequate daycare systems, ever growing hunger issues, and economic development initiatives are receiving attention from the Trustees today.
Health: Hospitals and health agencies have been recipients of Foundation awards since its founding. Equipment, outreach programs, staff positions, screening and education materials are just a few examples of grants given. Health education programs for at-risk children and their parents, support for the critically ill, AIDS/HIV education programs, and nursing scholarships have all received awards in the past decade. Specific institutions and specific programs, rather than national organizations, are usually given priority.
