About this funder:



Established in 1955, the Morris J. and Betty Kaplun Foundation, is a non-profit philanthropic organization underscoring the eleemosynary, humanitarian and Jewish concerns of its founders, Morris J. and Betty Kaplun. The Kapluns, who were refugees from Nazi persecution, dedicated their lives to a variety of philanthropic causes. The Foundation endeavors to continue their good work. 

Morris J. & Betty Kaplun Foundation Grant

The Morris J. & Betty Kaplun Foundation makes small grants (usually between $1,000 and $5,000) to non-profits with varied missions, with special interest (but not exclusively) in organizations that have Jewish roots and constituencies in the United States and Israel, as well as worldwide, and that perform work in the areas of blindness and medical research, poverty, service learning and child welfare. Our goal is to support projects and work that would not otherwise be feasible. We fund ongoing general expenses as well as new initiatives. Because of the size of our grants, we typically do not give to large organizations, hospitals, museums, or to organizations with annual budgets substantially above $1 million or assets greater than $5 million.

The Foundation, whose fiscal year ends August 31, does not give to the same organization more than once in any fiscal year.
