The Ittleson Foundation 

Since 1932, The Ittleson Foundation has been serving the needs of the underprivileged and providing resources for organizations. The Foundation recognizes not-for-profit organizations, dedicated to bettering the United States, and as such, we provide funds for new initiatives and model projects that have the potential to greatly enhance public policy and the lives of fellow citizens. The Foundation's areas of particular interest are: mental health, AIDS, and the environment.

With a limited budget, the Foundation is unable to fund individuals, direct service programs, continuing support or capital campaigns.

AIDS

AIDS remains a significant concern of the Ittleson Foundation. Our commitment to supporting cutting-edge prevention efforts remains strong. As in all our current areas of interest, innovative initiatives that involve more than one program area are encouraged.

We are particularly interested in new model, pilot, and demonstration efforts:

  • addressing the needs of underserved at-risk populations and especially those programs recognizing the overlap between such programs
  • responding to the challenges facing community-based AIDS service organizations and those organizations addressing systemic change
  • providing meaningful school-based sex education
  • making treatment information accessible, available and easily understandable to those in need of it
  • addressing the psycho-social needs of those infected and affected by AIDS, especially adolescents

Mental Health

Since 1932 Mental Health has been a major focus at the Ittleson Foundation. The Foundation continues its commitment to bringing its “venture capital” approach to philanthropy to this area. In addition to our historic commitment to addressing the needs of underserved populations, we are particularly interested in innovative, pilot, model and demonstration projects that are:

  • fighting the stigma associated with mental illness and working to change the public’s negative perception of people who have mental illness
  • utilizing new knowledge and current technological advances to improve programs and services for people who have mental illness
  • bringing the full benefits of this new knowledge and technology to those who presently do not have access to them
  • advancing preventative mental health efforts, especially those targeted to youth and adolescents, with a special focus on strategies that involve parents, teachers, and others in close contact with these populations
