Hearst Foundations Present Winter 2016 Grants


WEBWIRE

Each year, the Hearst Foundations makes four announcements awarding grants to deserving organizations across the country. In December, the Foundations offered 76 grants valued at $16,075,000. Over $10 million of the grants went toward culture efforts, including a $7.5 million gift to Lincoln Center for the redevelopment of David Geffen Hall.

The Hearst Foundations—which operate independently from Hearst—act as a unified national philanthropic resource for organizations and institutions working in the fields of education, health, culture and social service. Their work helps to ensure that people of all backgrounds have the opportunity to build healthy, productive and inspiring lives.

Since their creation in the 1940s, the Hearst Foundations have awarded more than 20,000 grants, reflecting the philanthropic interests of William Randolph Hearst. Grant proposals are submitted by organizations across the country, reviewed and vetted by the Foundations’ staff based in San Francisco and New York. They are then brought before the Foundations’ Board of Directors for approval.
