The Achelis And Bodman Foundation
The Foundation, formed in 2015 from two separate foundations, focuses its grantmaking on six program areas: arts and culture, education, employment, health, public policy, and youth and families. Arts and culture grants are generally targeted toward New York Cityís most prominent cultural institutions, with an emphasis on those most likely to promote and sustain traditional concepts of artistic excellence. Education grants tend to fund charter schools, voucher programs, scholarships to parochial schools, and research that examines the impact of competition and other factors on K-12 educational performance. In addition, the Foundation has an interest in helping young people and adults to realize their dreams of a college education. Most of the Foundationís grants are made in New York City, but it also makes grants in New Jersey, with an emphasis on Newark and Monmouth counties. Employment grants support effective job training and placement programs. Health grants support the needs of poor children, the disabled, and other disadvantaged populations, as well as basic biomedical research. Public policy grants address a broad range of subjects including K-12 education, healthcare, families and marriage, crime prevention, prisoner re-entry, philanthropy, the environment, welfare reform, and faith and religion. Youth and families grants support programs that boost academic achievement, provide positive recreational and educational activities for disadvantaged young people, promote good character and values, preserve families, and encourage responsible parenting. Additional details about each program and application instructions can be found on the Web site.
