The Mayer & Morris Kaplan Family Foundation is a multi-generational family foundation that focuses its resources in the City of Chicago. Its mission is to help the people and communities of Chicago to forge a more progressive, inclusive and democratic society. In pursuit of this mission, the Foundation is guided by the following goals: to advance educational opportunities for young people; to support a range of social services that build strong cohesive families; to foster a vibrant visual and performing arts environment; to ensure access to reproductive rights; and to help give a more powerful civic voice to the underserved people and communities of our city.
In 2013, the Foundation will only consider proposals from Chicago-based Education organizations that were funded in 2012. Full proposals must be received no later than Monday, February 4, 2013. Previous Chicago grantees should see Proposal Procedures for details. The Foundation will not consider LOIs or proposals from Chicago organizations that were not funded in 2012. Questions about the proposal process and general inquiries should be directed to Dinaz Mansuri via email at email@example.com or by phone at (847) 681-5059.
