The Blank Family Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant proposals.

Due to the volume of inquiries, the Foundation is unable to respond to every submission. The Foundation grant process is very competitive, and only a few ideas lead to grant awards. Also, the Foundation does not make grants:

  • directly to individuals
  • for scholarships
  • or to support houses of worship or religious activity
  • In nearly all cases, Foundation grants in these areas are limited to work in Georgia

Organizations seeking funds for projects that fall outside of the Foundation’s areas of focus should not submit letters of inquiry. Organizations looking for foundations with an interest in their work should contact the Foundation Center library in Atlanta, which makes available a searchable database nonprofits can use to develop funding leads.
