OVERVIEW: The Holloway Family Foundation centers grantmaking on organizations active in Alzheimer’s and cancer research.
IP TAKE: This is a small family foundation that aims to give folks a “leg up.” Given its geographic restrictions and modestly sized grants, this is a funder that may be best suited for local and grassroots groups.
PROFILE: The Graham and Carolyn Holloway Foundation was founded in 1995 with a mission to “enhance the quality of life for those people in our communities who are least likely to be able to do that on their own.” The Holloway Family Foundation limits its grantmaking to the states of Texas, Tennessee and North Carolina, giving special consideration to those organizations located within a 75 mile radius of Colleyville, TX, Nashville, TN, and Salisbury, NC.
The Holloway Foundation’s disease-related grantmaking centers on organizations focusing on Alzheimer’s and cancer research. It also supports organizations that work to deliver treatment and other support to people living with illnesses, notably AIDS. The foundation gives grantmaking priority to organizations working with the elderly, disadvantaged children, those with developmental or physical disabilities as well as people who are chronically or terminally ill.
Holloway’s grants typically range from $2,500 to $10,000. Note that the foundation will not be accepting proposals or letters of inquiry for the time being, while its website is under construction.
