The Finker Frenkel Foundation chooses its strategic direction annually based on our stated objectives and the information and experiences gleaned from the previous projects with which we have been involved. We seek to develop strong working relationships with our grant recipients in the manner of collaborators working toward a common cause. In this way, we maintain a keen understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by those engaged in the endeavor of researching and treating neurological disorders as well as those working to educate our communities about them and assist those living with these conditions. Grant recipients are chosen based on the alignment of their initiatives with the Foundation’s annually specified directives.
The Finker Frenkel Foundation only awards grants to organizations designated as 501 or with similar tax-exempt status. Grant seekers are asked to submit a Short-Form grant application. Before submitting a Short-Form application, please carefully read through this year’s Grant Directives as specified in Grant Information, and do not submit grant applications for projects or initiatives that do not support these directives. The Foundation accepts these applications from January 1- September 30, reviews them from October 1-31, and selects those best aligned with our current goals to submit Full Proposals. Full Proposals are accepted by invitation only and must be received by December 31. These proposals shall then be carefully evaluated and grant winners will be selected and notified by March 31.
