Partridge Foundation: Grants for Global Health

OVERVIEW: The Partridge Foundation supports global health organizations working with marginalized and vulnerable populations, both domestically and internationally. The foundation’s grantmaking in the global health space is relatively broad.

IP TAKE: Partridge appears to favor mid- to large-sized global health programs that have the potential to impact a large number of people.

PROFILE: The Partridge Foundation does not have formal or paid staff, and does not operate a website leaving its public profile virtually nonexistent despite giving substantially to global health. 

Partridge’s tax filings reveal an interest in global health organizations that work with poor and marginalized populations, domestically and abroad. It gives broadly in this space and funds grants for neurodegenerative disease research, sexual and reproductive health rights, and social services programs.

Partridge has a history of supporting large organizations such as Doctors Without Borders and the Center for Reproductive Rights, as well as lesser-known outfits such as Community and Family Services International. Foundation-wide, grants generally range between $100,000 to $300,000, with a select few coming in between $500,000 and $1 million. The majority of the foundation’s grants are awarded for general support, but it also awards several grants to support specific programs and projects.

Partridge offers generous grants, but does not accept unsolicited grant proposals or requests for funding.
