Application Overview

Educational, Cultural, and Social Service Grants

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:

  • general operating support for smaller organizations
  • program support, or
  • funding for pilot projects.

Organizations may only apply for funding once a year, except through a Board request.
