September 2003Vol. 4, No. 7Direct Service Grants Available from Hasbro
The Hasbro Children's Foundation offers grants to improve the emotional, mental, and physical well-being of children through innovative direct service programs. Recent grants have supported a program to recruit and train foster parents for high-risk infants, a national child abuse prevention initiative, and a program to support grandparent caregivers.
The foundation offers three levels of funding support to nonprofit organizations only:
- Innovative programs with local impact. These smaller grants fund direct service programs for disadvantaged children in a local community. New or existing programs are eligible.
- National replication of innovations. Larger, sometimes multi-year grants are available to bring successful programs to other communities.
- Innovative programs with national impact. These grants are available for programs that show potential for improving the quality of life for vulnerable children in every community across the nation.
Funding decisions are made three times per year; unsolicited requests are accepted on a rolling basis. For more information and how to apply, visit the Hasbro Children's Foundation website at www.hasbro.org/hcf.
