Overview:

History And Types Of Support

The Blumenthal Foundation was established in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1953. The Foundation provides grants for seed money, annual operating budgets, capital campaigns, conferences and seminars, special projects and endowments.

Purposes And Activities

The Blumenthal Foundation since its inception in 1953 has focused the majority of its grants on programs and projects that have an impact on Charlotte, and the state of North Carolina. The Board of Trustees also believes that it is important to provide basic operational funding for non-profits, not just support for special programs or projects. Nonprofit organizations are in the business of providing services for the public good, and they usually know how best to accomplish this task. By providing nonprofits with these general operating funds, they will have the resources necessary to carry out their basic mission.

The philanthropic efforts of the Foundation are focused in nine areas of grantmaking.

  • Environment
  • Health
  • Education
  • Arts, Science, and Culture
  • Civic and Community
  • Foundation Affiliates
  • Jewish Institutions and Philanthropies
  • Religious and Interfaith
  • Social Services

There are no deadlines, and requests are accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the year. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees meets on a quarterly basis.
