The Arthur Foundation
The Foundationís grantmaking is focused on improving the health of the population. Funding is awarded to organizations that provide accessible, affordable, and appropriate health services to vulnerable populations. Health care grants support the medically indigent, medically underserved populations, children and youth, and the mentally and physically challenged. Also of interest are those suffering from HIV/AIDS, the health of newly arrived residents, programs that look to wellness and prevention, and people who need assistance with dental, vision, and hearing problems. The Foundation also awards education grants to those who have little access to education, adult education and GED fulfillment programs, programs that enhance math and science skills, computer education, and after-hours and extracurricular opportunities for school-aged children. Funding is also awarded to projects that provide academic resources for schools, curricular enhancements in the visual and performing arts, educational opportunities to the disabled, programs that encourage college attendance, and those that train and educate doctors, nurses, teachers, and charitable organization managers. Education grants fall under the Foundationís Initiative for Educational Excellence program targeted at schools located in the City of Berwyn, the town of Cicero, and the western suburbs of Chicago. The Foundation asks potential applicants to send a two- or three-page letter outlining briefly the project, the amount of funding sought, and time frame in which the funds are needed.
