Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations, medical and educational institutions, and faith-based and community organizations for projects related to nutrition. Priority will be given to training, educational programs, and research projects that stress the connection between health and diet.

The policies and priorities of Allen Foundation, Inc.:

  • To make grants to fund relevant nutritional research.
  • To support programs for the education and training of mothers during pregnancy and after the birth of their children, so that good nutritional habits can be formed at an early age.
  • To assist in the training of persons to work as educators and demonstrators of good nutritional practices.
  • To encourage the dissemination of information regarding healthful nutritional practices and habits.
  • In limited situations to make grants to help solve immediate emergency hunger and malnutrition problems.

The connections between diet and health remain a basic and primary priority, and consideration has always been given to projects that benefit nutritional programs in the areas of education, training, and research. Low priority has traditionally been given to proposals that help solve immediate or emergency hunger and malnutrition problems. 

The foundation welcomes proposals that develop and advance: (1) the inclusion of mandatory courses in nutrition in medical schools; (2) bringing the promise of nutrigenomics or nutritional genomics to realization; and (3) the promotion of environmentally sound, economically viable, socially responsive, and sustainable food and agricultural systems.
