About this funder:
The John and Susan Dewan Foundation
Providing hope and a future to those in poverty by supporting organizations that help people to help themselves.
The John & Susan Dewan Foundation began in January 2000 following the completion of the sale of STATS, Inc., a sports information company founded by John and Susan in the 1980’s. Through the foundation’s grant program, we provide hope and a future to people in poverty by supporting U.S. based charitable organizations that help people to help themselves.
In the Chicago area, the grant program helps homeless people with case management, education, training and experience in preparation for stable housing and employment.
For USA-based organizations working in developing countries, the foundation supports education, job creation and economic development.
The John and Susan Dewan Foundation makes grants and gives assistance only to charitable organizations that have tax-exempt status in the USA and that provide direct service to people in poverty. Projects that transform lives and help the poor to help themselves are our primary focus. Faith-based organizations, primarily in the Roman Catholic tradition, are a special interest for our grant making. We strongly favor making grants to smaller organizations rather than multi-million-dollar institutions.
Grants will primarily be made to organizations operating programs and providing services in two areas:
- within the City of Chicago and the immediately surrounding suburbs.
- USA-based charitable organizations that address the needs of people in poverty overseas.
Grant Size and Length of Commitment
Grants will generally be $2,500 or less and will usually be awarded for a single year. The Foundation may provide grants in subsequent years to an initial award.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Grants are made only to public charities with tax-exempt status in the USA under Section 501(c)(3).
