Grants Policy

The Case Foundation invests its resources in specific projects and initiatives that complement our approach to philanthropy. Our grants and staff time are focused on partnerships that we develop proactively with nonprofits, businesses, and other foundations. We regret that we are unable to review or consider unsolicited proposals.

While we do not accept unsolicited proposals, our website is intended to inspire new ideas and help organizations and individuals implement them. If you are seeking financial or other support for your initiative, you might want to try the following resources:
