Staff Grantmaking Initiative


The Staff Grantmaking Initiative provides small teams of employees inside the Sloan Foundation with the opportunity to make grants of up to $25,000 to local nonprofits that advance the Foundation's mission and values.  Each year, staff teams move from strategic development to landscape research and prospect identification to proposal development.  The initiative allows staff in non-grantmaking roles to get hands-on experience with the work of grantmaking and in the process build a deeper connection to and understanding of the work of the Foundation.

To be eligible, nonprofit organizations need not have a focus on science or technology, but must be seeking support for activities that resonate with the Foundation's mission and that target populations in NYC.  

Grants in this initiative are limited to 12 months and no more than $25,000.  

This program does not accept unsolicited proposals or letters of inquiry.
