OVERVIEW: The Salie Foundation’s global health grantmaking centers around nutrition efforts in both the U.S. and abroad.
IP TAKE: This funder does not operate a website or maintain a formal staff, so grantseekers may have a difficult time attracting Salie’s attentions. . However, the foundation accepts new grantees each year.
PROFILE: The Florida-based Salie Family Foundation is a modest global health grantmaker that focuses its giving on improving nutrition in developing countries. Malnutrition is the underlying cause of nearly half of worldwide deaths of children under five. Indeed, around one-quarter of children around the globe are stunted due to malnutrition.
Salie is a small family funder that makes modest grants that typically range from $5,000 to $15,000. Also, this funder does not award many grants each year, usually 10 to 20. Its larger grants tend to support larger international groups such as Unicef. It also funds projects related to water.
The majority of awards go to nutrition programs, but Salie does award a few grants for general operating support as well. Salie does not geographically restrict its grants, and it does not accept unsolicited requests for funding or grant applications.
