Braitmayer Foundation

The Braitmayer Foundation, located in Marion, Massachusetts, was established in 1964 through a gift from Marian S. Braitmayer. Currently five members of the family direct the activities of the Foundation.

A third-generation family foundation encouraging innovative programs to enhance the quality of education at the pre-collegiate level.

Objectives & Guidelines


The Foundation is interested in proposals utilizing innovative practices in K-12 education throughout the United States. Of particular interest are:

  • Curricular and school reform initiatives.
  • Preparation of and professional development opportunities for teachers, particularly those which encourage people of high ability and diverse background to enter and remain in K-12 teaching.

In addition, the Braitmayer Foundation provides modest support of activities in Marion, Massachusetts and surrounding communities which will improve the quality of life for residents in the area. 


The Foundation is pleased to have its grants used anywhere in the United States as seed money, challenge grants, or to match other grants to the recipient organizations. Please note: This grant cycle takes one full year from submission of a Letter of Inquiry to notification and may include a site visit.

The Foundation awards Grants up to $35,000
