Overview:

Background

The Josephine Goodyear Foundation traces its roots back to 1912 when Mrs. Frank Goodyear donated funds to build the Josephine Goodyear Convalescent Home on Main Street in Williamsville, New York. The home housed disadvantaged women and children and provided pre-operative services to prepare them for the rigors of early surgery and to provide post surgery recovery. After World War II, with the development of antibiotics, the need for such services was greatly reduced. The property was then sold and the foundation was established.

The Josephine Goodyear Foundation Fund now funds approximately 50 annual grants totaling about $300,000. Grant decisions are made at Advisory Council meetings held in May and September of each year by our Contributions Committee.

Grant Opportunity 

Our mission calls for assistance to non-profit agencies which help "indigent women and children, particularly with their physical needs". In the past, most of our efforts have been focused on medical facilities but we have broadened that scope in more recent years so that we can aid needy women and children in other ways. Our funding is concentrated on the Greater Buffalo area.
