Making an Impact, One Grant at a Time
The Neag Foundation is committed to providing grants that have an impact — we want to create possibilities for important change in areas of need in education, healthcare and the arts. We believe in the power of change. Most of our grants have been given to organizations and programs in Pennsylvania and Connecticut, the states in which the Neags lived. We hope our foundation will have an impact in education and healthcare and to improve the world. As Ray and Carole Neag often said, “we hope to leave the world a little better than we found it.”
If your organization is interested in submitting a proposal for consideration by the Neag Foundation, we encourage you to review our criteria for funding carefully to become acquainted with our grant-making goals and strategies. Unfortunately, we must decline many excellent proposals every year because they do not fit the parameters of our work. This is not a reflection of the ideas or importance of the applications but of our need to make thoughtful choices as we seek to continue the legacy of Ray and Carole Neag.
Thank you for your interest in the Neag Foundation.
An organization seeking funding from the Neag Foundation should first submit a letter of inquiry using the brief online form below. This will give us enough information to decide whether your program fits with the current focus of our grant making, before you spend time writing a more in-depth grant proposal.
Our form requires the following:
- Name and a brief description of your organization
- Overview of the specific project for which you seek funding
- The amount requested at the time of your inquiry
- Contact information
- Indication that your organization has 501(c)3 status
The Fall 2021 grant application window is now closed. We will begin accepting applications for Spring 2022 funding on December 1st.
