Rachel and Drew Katz Foundation: Grants for Diseases

OVERVIEW: The Rachel and Drew Katz Foundation supports a wide range of disease-related organizations around the United States.

IP TAKE: The foundation prioritizes large, national organizations over small and local ones. 

PROFILE: The Drew A. Katz Foundation became the Rachel and Drew Katz Foundation in 2015, in honor of the Katzes’ two-year wedding anniversary. Drew Katz, CEO of Interstate Outdoor Advertising, is the son of Lewis Katz, former co-owner of the New Jersey Nets, New Jersey Devils, and the Philadelphia Inquirer. This funder does not have specific focus areas, but addresses “challenging areas, including, but not limited to, organizations addressing medical, educational, social, emotional, and cultural needs of those less fortunate.”

While the Katz Foundation does not have a specific disease program, it supports cancer research and diverse disease-related groups across the United States. Its grants often support national organizations such as the American Cancer Society, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, and the Wilson Disease Association.

The Katz Foundation’s grants generally range from $500 to $20,000. To learn more about the types of organizations Katz supports, explore its Giving page.  

The Rachel and Drew Katz Foundation is not currently accepting unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
