The Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.
Our approach to grant-making is hands-on and includes a considerable amount of due diligence to ensure that each organization identified, is aligned with the Foundation’s mission.
Through targeted partnerships and active engagement, the Foundation provides access to critical programs for clients of organizations. We focus on ways to scale strong programs and encourage others interested in our three pillars to join us in supporting organizations and programs that have been vetted and are proven winners. We encourage grantees to use our grants to leverage matching grants to expand their impact.
As a foundation, we are interested in results and engage fully with our grantees. We do not believe in providing funds and walking away. We are on a journey together to achieve our goals of providing opportunities for those looking for a second chance.
Grants from the Francine A. LeFrak Foundation go to facilitate direct programs, remove barriers, and provide access to opportunities which will positively impact participants.
