Jm Kaplan Fund
This New York-based family Fund has four official grant programs: City Life program, Environment program, Historic Preservation program, and Migrations program. The City Life program concentrates on public spaces and public services throughout the five boroughs of New York City, especially on the city’s parks and streets. The Environment program focuses its grantmaking on marine conservation, especially in ocean waters that lie beyond the jurisdiction of a single, national government. Of particular interest are organizations working to create international protections for species and ecoregions of the High Seas; educate scientists and the public about the value and vulnerability of the ocean as a world system; and foment civil society movements to protect Arctic waters and Arctic coastal communities. Historic preservation grants seek to preserve and protect major archaeological sites in North Africa and Southwest Asia. The Fund also supports the development of a movement to inventory and protect North American industrial architecture; zoning protections for 20th Century architecture in Miami and Havana; and the rescue of particularly valuable/particularly threatened buildings in New York City. Under the Migrations program, the Fund supports comprehensive immigration policy reform for the United States and the integration of immigrants into local and national communities. Letters of inquiry are accepted at any time. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
