Grants

While the Vilcek Foundation supports the work of a small number of 501(c)(3) cultural and educational institutions in the United States, the bulk of its resources are used in support of its own programs, events, and exhibitions. Grants are awarded to eligible tax-exempt entities, each selected by the Vilcek Foundation, for programs and initiatives that complement the Foundation’s mission. The following list is a complete grant history from 2000 to the present. The Vilcek Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant proposals; nor, due to staffing limitations, can it respond to them.
