The Louis and Harold Price Foundation has entered into a moratorium on NEW grant requests. At this time, we are NOT accepting Letters of Inquiry or Applications. The Foundation is embarking on a strategic planning process. We recommend NEW organizations check back in August, 2017 to determine the status of our application process.
We greatly appreciate your patience during this time.
If you are a previously funded grantee (within the last 24 months) you may apply for renewed funding by clicking here.
On an annual basis, only a small portion of the Foundation’s resources are directed toward unsolicited proposals. Even though a proposal may fit our goals and interest areas, many excellent projects are not funded simply because of the volume of proposals we receive, prior commitments to grantees, and the limited amount of new funding available.
The Foundation will not support organizations that discriminate in their leadership, staffing, service provision or on the basis of age, gender, race, ethnicity, disability, national origin, political affiliation, religious belief or sexual orientation. The Foundation generally does not support religious organizations for religious purposes but will consider grants for programs within our focus areas.

Our Focus Areas
The foundation supports programs in:
Arts & Culture
The foundation supports excellence in the arts with an emphasis on education. Unsolicited programs in this area are rarely funded.
Children & Youth
The foundation realizes the importance and need for programs and services that positively impact today's youth.
The Foundation is committed to excellence in education with an emphasis on innovative approaches to engaging students of all ages. In line with its other interest areas, the Foundation encourages economic and ethnic diversity of students and faculty.
Grants for entrepreneurship education and training programs in this area are focused primarily on higher education, but the foundation will also consider programs that engage a wider audience, such as high school students, women’s groups and the urban poor.
A clean, healthy and sustainable environment for all living things - for this and for future generations - is a goal of the Foundation.
The Foundation’s focus on health care supports excellence in research, training, health care services, and outreach to the poor and medically underserved. The Foundation recognizes the importance of mental health treatment and family planning services as integral components of health care delivery.
The Foundation focuses on programs that provide food, shelter and supportive servcies to the most vulnerable members of society - homeless people, abused and neglected children, families in crisis, the elderly, and people with physical and developmental disabilities. Of particular interest are programs that encourage and support independence and self-sufficiency.
Grants in the area of medical research are generally initiated by the Board of Trustees. Unsolicited proposals in this area are rarely funded.
Civic & Community and Jewish Related Causes
The Price Family maintains its historic commitment to Jewish causes, as well as civic organizations in the trustees’ local communities.
