Peter And Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation Inc
NOTE: The Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications. An organization may call PCLB’s offices at any time to discuss the possibility of applying for funds. Prior to calling, please review the information describing the goals and strategies of grant portfolios on the website to ensure your conversation with PCLB staff is worthwhile.
The Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation (PCLB) was formed in 1999, by Dr. Peter Buck and his wife Carmen Lucia as a private family foundation to manage their family’s philanthropy in a thoughtful and strategic manner.
PCLB’s work is anchored by its mission statement, “giving motivated people the tools they need to help themselves.” These tools are about more than grants and include guidance, connections, convening, information, and other forms of assistance that the foundation and its grantees can provide. PCLB looks to support the highest‐quality organizations that show initiative, leadership, and innovation in solving issues that are meaningful to the family and the communities where family members live.
Within the Education Portfolio, PCLB funds strategies believed to offer the greatest likelihood for success in creating and improving K-12 educational opportunities for all students:
- Charter Schools: Combining operational freedoms and accountability, charter schools provide the framework within which principals and teachers can create and run successful schools. One example of this success is evident in longtime PCLB grantee, Excellence Community Schools, a charter management organization with schools in both New York City and Connecticut. The network’s flagship school was the first charter school in the Bronx to receive a National Blue Ribbon, awarded by the U.S. Department of Education. The school in Stamford, CT was the top school district in the state during the 2018-19 school year.
- Advocacy: Thoughtfully crafted public policies enable great public schools to proliferate and thrive. PCLB supports organizations that advocate for effective education policies and practices, with a particular focus on ensuring that all schools are funded in a fair and sensible way. For example, the School and State Finance Project helps make unbiased information on school funding more readily available, to inform better policy decisions. And organizations like FaithActs for Education and Educators for Excellence support their members in calling for better funding systems and other critical education policies.
- People Quality: Great principals and teachers are essential factors to student success. PCLB supports programs that recruit, prepare, and retain high-quality school staff. In an example of this work, PCLB funded the launch of TEACH Connecticut to provide resources to anyone considering teaching in Connecticut and to build the strongest-possible educator workforce.
- Scholarship Fund: PCLB supports motivated students who have achieved academic and social success in accessing opportunities that they might not otherwise have had through college.
Despite significant advances in medicine and technology, global health crises are on the rise, necessitating increased and targeted investments in global health care capabilities. In this regard, PCLB supports MSF- Doctors Without Borders, a highly effective, global health care organization with rapid response capabilities to address the world’s most dangerous diseases and emerging health issues in places where few others would accept the risk. PCLB also supports Callen-Lorde, an exemplary community health clinic, which is ensuring members of New York’s LGBTQ community receive the level of specialized care they need in a supportive environment.
Camping helps build physical fitness, independence, confidence, teamwork, and leadership skills, as well as a healthy respect for nature in youth. Through this portfolio, PCLB provides scholarships that allow more young people to attend summer residence camp and enjoy traditional camp experiences.
Quality, objective journalism is fundamental for a free and democratic society to thrive. As many journalism organizations transition from traditional news models to those more reflective of how people currently consume information, philanthropic support is essential until they can be more self-sustaining. PCLB is cognizant of the need to revitalize local journalism, to ensure that citizens are informed and engaged in topics of vital importance, including government policies affecting education, the environment, health, and others.
Each of PCLB’s Directors have access to a limited amount of funding with which they make grants in their sole discretion. Organizations selected are typically based on personal interests of each Director at the time of grant applications.

Lloyd G. Balfour Foundation
The Lloyd G. Balfour Foundation was established in 1973. The Foundation's 3 primary focus areas reflect Mr. Balfour's strong affinity for the employees of the Balfour Company, his commitment to the city of Attleboro, Massachusetts, and his lifelong interest in education. Specifically, the Balfour Foundation supports:
- Educational scholarships to employees of the Balfour Company, as well as to their children and grandchildren
- Organizations serving the people of Attleboro, with special consideration given to those organizations that provide educational, human services and health care programming for underserved populations
- Educational organizations that serve New England
The Foundation's educational funding is generally focused on organizations or programs that provide support for underserved or under-represented populations to prepare for, access and succeed in higher education, including 2-year and 4-year institutions.
It is clear that Mr. Balfour was interested in supporting students for successful completion of college. As such, the Foundation focuses its grantmaking in the New England area on programs that support college readiness, access, and success. The Foundation is most interested in programs that support students all the way into and through post-secondary credential attainment (2- or 4-year credentials). Programs within institutions of higher education aimed at attracting, supporting, and retaining (through successful completion) under-served and under-represented populations are also of interest. In this area, we will consider applications that request scholarship funds, if those scholarships are part of a broader set of services and supports.
