MCJ Amelior Foundation: Grants for Diseases

OVERVIEW: The New Jersey-based MCJ Amelior Foundation supports a broad range of disease-related organizations across the United States.

IP TAKE: There does not appear to be many limitations to Amelior’s grantmaking in this space. While this foundation does have sizeable assets, the majority of its disease grants are rather modest.

PROFILE: The MCJ Amelior Foundation awards a large number of grants to a variety of disease-related organizations across the country. While the foundation does not have a website, its tax filings suggest that this funder has a broad range of interests in this space.

The diversity of Amelior’s giving in this space is apparent: past grantees include the Cancer Hope Network, the Alan T. Brown Foundation to Cure Paralysis, and the Alliance for Lupus Research. The vast majority of grants are for general operating support.

The Amelior Foundation awards $7 million to $8 million in grants each year, ranging in dollar amounts anywhere from $500 up to over $400,000.
