Frank and Denise Quattrone Foundation: Grants for Diseases

OVERVIEW: The Quattrone Foundation supports a wide variety of disease-related organizations across the country.

IP TAKE: Quattrone maintains a low public profile, which makes it difficult for grantseekers to secure information. However, grantseekers are advised to network in order to attract Quattrone’s funding attention.

PROFILE: Frank Quattrone is probably best known as one of the leading investment bankers in Silicon Valley. In 2002, he and his wife Denise established the Frank and Denise Quattrone Foundation in Los Altos, California. The foundation maintains a broad approach to grantmaking, which supports a variety of diseases.

The foundation maintains a low public profile: it does not have a website or employ any formal staff. This makes it difficult to maintain any solid information about Quattrone. However, tax filings reveal a variety of investments across various diseases in the United States. For instance, past grantees include the Alzheimer’s Association of Northern California, AIM for Mental Health, and the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health. 

Quattrone Foundation grants can start as low as $500 and go as high as $500,000. Most awards range between $10,000 to $50,000. The foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding. While it supports a diverse set of disease-related organizations across the country, it tends to support the same groups each year. Thus, the foundation potentially funds its grantees for multiple cycles.
