The Patrina Foundation is presently concentrating its funding in the New York Metropolitan area and surrounding counties.
Grants are made exclusively to tax-exempt organizations, with the exception of private foundations. Grantees are primarily educational, cultural, and social service organizations which promote academic, artistic, athletic, job skills, life skills, and/or leadership abilities of girls and women. We do not fund individuals. Organizations must have 501(c)(3) status. They must be not-for-profit organizations.
The Foundation makes three (3) types of grants:
- Seed money for start-up organizations or start-up programs,
- One-time grants to solve a problem or build capacity, or
- Renewable ongoing support. In certain situations, we will entertain a multi-year request to follow a cohort of participants through a program.
Organizations may only apply for funding once a year, except through a Board request.
