Grants for Nonprofits Safeguarding Basic Rights

From The Foundation Center...

Deadline: October 10, 2009 (Letters of Inquiry)

Herb Block Foundation Accepting Applications for Defending Basic Freedoms Program

The Herb Block Foundation's Defending Basic Freedoms grant program seeks proposals to safeguard the basic freedoms guaranteed in America's Bill of Rights, to help eliminate all forms of prejudice and discrimination, and to assist government agencies to be more accountable to the public. Anti-discrimination projects which involve joint efforts of two or more organizations are encouraged. The foundation will also consider funding for programs to address contemporary societal issues that may arise during the project.

Applicants must be nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations located in the United States.

Grants in the range of $5,000 to $25,000 each will be considered for one year's funding. Grants will not be made for capital or endowment programs, nor for sectarian religious purposes. Grants cannot be used for lobbying or other partisan purposes.
