Our Application Process
We will not be accepting any further proposals until September 2016. Organizations are welcome to submit Letters of Inquiry in 2016.
The Ansara Family Fund’s fiscal year is July 1-June 30, with grant proposals typically due September 15 and funding decisions announced in late November or December.
Important Note to Grant Seekers:
In the second half of 2014 our funding focus underwent a shift. Since 2010 we have funded organizations in Haiti working in a number of sectors (livelihoods, education, human rights and health care) in order to seize the historic opportunity to rebuild a more just and prosperous country. However, we are now increasing our focus to address the challenges of building healthcare infrastructure in Haiti and other remote and under resourced settings through Jim’s private operating foundation Build Health International. We also make a limited number of grants to promote international philanthropy and development.
Most of our grants for food and shelter North of Boston are now made through the Ansara Fund for Essex County at the Essex County Community Foundation.
Because in the fiscal year 2015 we are rebalancing and refocusing the Fund, we are not accepting new grant proposals in the autumn of 2014. However, we encourage grant seekers working in our focus areas to keep us informed of their work.
