|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
The Merck Family Fund grant supports work by communities with few resources that are confronting significant social, economic, and environmental challenges. The Merck Family Fund was established in 1954 by George W. Merck, President of Merck & Co. He created the fund for two principal reasons: 1) to do good with the resources acquired through the company's success; 2) to create an opportunity to regularly bring family members together.
Merck Family Fund Goals
The fund welcomes proposals that:
Conserving Ecologically Valuable Land
Making Paper Production Sustainable
Promoting Energy Efficiency
Urban Farming and Youth Leadership
Priority will be given to projects that combine all aspects above and that reside in the six New England states, New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia, PA.
Deadlines: Typically they have two grant cycles. Letters of Inquiry will be reviewed on a rolling basis through the online application system. If invited, full proposals must be submitted through the online application system no later than January 31 for the Spring decision and August 1 for the November decision.
