OVERVIEW: The New-Land Foundation awards grants to organizations that work to mitigate the threat of weapons of mass destruction and seek to ease regional conflicts.
IP TAKE: This approachable funder backs both large and small organizations. However, it does tend to repeat grants to the same organizations each year, tightening the budget for new grants.
PROFILE: Based in New York, the New-Land Foundation was founded in 1941 by Joseph and Muriel Buttinger. Since then, the foundation has supported peacebuilding and arms control organizations. More specifically, New-Land supports organizations that work to reduce the threat of weapons of mass destruction and efforts to “wind down especially dangerous regional conflicts.”
This funder keeps a low public profile and does not main a website, making getting in touch more difficult for grantseekers. According to tax filings, grant amounts range between $5,000 and $25,000. Grants are made to U.S.-based organizations and foreign charities with which the foundation already has an established relationship.
New-Land accepts unsolicited grant applications twice a year. Applications must be received by February 1 and August 1. The foundation requests that proposals not exceed five pages, and be as specific as possible regarding project descriptions, how goals will be achieved, and project impact.
