Capital Groups Companies Charitable Foundation: Grants for Brain Research

OVERVIEW: The Capital Groups Companies Charitable Foundation supports brain and neurological organizations across the country.  

IP TAKE: This funder appears to offer general operating support grants more often than project specific grants.

PROFILE: Established in 1997, the Capital Groups Companies Charitable Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the financial services company, Capital Groups Companies. The foundation keeps a low public profile, does not have a website dedicated to its corporate giving, and does not employ a formal and paid staff.

The company’s website briefly describes the foundation’s work as committed to supporting communities in which Capital Groups Companies operate and environmental causes. While the foundation does not have a giving program dedicated to the neurological care or research, it supports related organizations. This funder prioritizes larger national organizations focusing on neurological disorders. Past grantees include the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Association and Autism Speaks.

Grant amounts vary widely, and range from a low of just $100 to over $200,000. Most grants however, fall in the $1,000 to $20,000 range. The foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding at this time.
