The mission of The Abney Foundation is to aid organizations that are operated exclusively for educational, religious, charitable, scientific, and literary purposes. The foundation's mission is to make grants for innovative and creative projects, and to programs which are responsive to changing community needs in the areas of education, health, social service and cultural affairs.
The primary focus is on higher education with 75-80% of the funding used for this purpose. The remaining annual funding generally supports local organizations.
None is available.
Application guidelines are available online at http://www.abneyfoundation.org/guidelines.pdf. Applicants should submit a Letter of Intent briefly describing the project before submitting a proposal in order to find out if their ideas are potentially fundable by the Foundation.
Letters of intent are accepted at any time.
