Reva and David Logan Foundation: Grants for Girls and Women

OVERVIEW: The Reva and David Logan Foundation awards grants to support girls and women’s organizations across the country.

IP TAKE: This funder awards both single and multi-year grants.

PROFILE: Reva Frumkin Logan and David Logan established the Reva and David Logan Foundation (R&DLF) in 1965. Based in Chicago, Illinois, R&DLF supports nonprofit organizations working within its priority grantmaking areas of social justice, scholarships, the arts, and investigative journalism “[i]n Chicago and around the world.”

The Logan Foundation does not have a grant-making program specifically directed toward girls and women; however, its tax filings indicate an interest in supported such organizations. For instance, past grantees in this space include The Hypocrites, which received a grant to support its Artistic Leadership Fellowship for women of color; and the Chicago Foundation for Women, which received support for its 100% Project.

While R&DLF arts grants can range anywhere from $1,000 to over $200,000, most awards typically range from around $5,000 to $50,000. To learn more about R&DLF grantees, explore its grants approved page (PDF).

The foundation accepts unsolicited letters of inquiry (LOIs) but does not accept unsolicited proposals. New applicants may submit their LOIs via the foundation’s Grantee Portal. Returning applicants need to contact grants manager Preeti Veerlapati before submitting their application materials.
