Hearst Foundations Present Spring 2018 Grants
April 24, 2018 - Hearst
The Hearst Foundations have announced that 79 grants valued at $8,900,000 have been awarded to deserving nonprofit organizations. The Foundations serve as a national philanthropic resource for cultural, educational, health and social service organizations and dedicate millions of dollars in grants quarterly. This season, Hearst Foundations’ grants included a first-time grant to EDWINS, a restaurant and culinary school which teaches formerly incarcerated individuals to be classically trained chefs in French cuisine.
The Hearst Foundations—which operate independently from Hearst—act as a unified national philanthropic resource for organizations and institutions working in the fields of education, health, culture and social service. Their work helps to ensure that people of all backgrounds have the opportunity to build healthy, productive and inspiring lives.
Since their creation in the 1940s, the Hearst Foundations have awarded more than 20,000 grants, reflecting the philanthropic interests of William Randolph Hearst. Grant proposals are submitted by organizations across the country, reviewed and vetted by the Foundations’ staff based in San Francisco and New York. They are then brought before the Foundations’ Board of Directors for approval.
