The Jack R. Anderson Foundation is interested in funding organizations that are IRS 501(c)(3) designated non-profits that provide a positive high impact in our local communities of Maryland, the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia. Our focus areas include:

  • Education
  • Nutrition
  • Housing
  • Social Justice
  • Animal Welfare
  • Environment
  • Arts

Generally, applications for these grants are by invitation only. However, an invitation to apply does not automatically ensure funding. Our grants typically fall in the range of $5,000 to $25,000, and there is no guarantee of multiple year commitments.

Our support goes beyond just funding. Our Board members are committed to providing their pro-bono guidance in law, accounting, finance and marketing. Please contact the Community Coordinator/Development Director to discuss how we may help.

We do not fund the following:

  • Individuals
  • Scholarships
  • Endowments
  • Direct mail solicitations/campaigns
  • Fundraising or special events
  • Political campaigns and legislative lobbying
  • Associations  

All applications must be submitted through our online grant portal system.
