Paul E. Singer Foundation: Grants for Diseases

OVERVIEW: The Paul E. Singer Foundation broadly awards health grants across the United States to support healthcare delivery innovations.

IP TAKE: Though lacking transparency, this funder seeks organizations with proven records of accomplishment and those that can demonstrate measurable results in the mid- and long terms.

PROFILE: Paul Singer is the founder of the New York-based investment firm, Elliot Capital. After experiencing a great deal of success in the finance industry, he established the Paul E. Singer Foundation to “[s]upport and create innovative and effective organizations and initiatives that strengthen American democracy, the future of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state and Jewish continuity.”  The foundation currently focuses its funding on free market and pro-growth economic policies, U.S. national security, individual freedom, Israel, Jewish causes, LGBT equality and healthcare delivery innovation.

The Singer Foundation employs a formal staff and operates a website; however, information on that website is sparse. According to tax fillings, though the foundation awards sizeable grants in the $200,000 to $500,000 range, the majority of awards range from $25,000 to $100,000. Past disease related grantees include organizations such as the Children’s Tumor Foundation and the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research.

The Paul E. Singer Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
