Rosenthal Family Foundation: Grants for Diseases

OVERVIEW: The Connecticut-based Rosenthal Family Foundation supports a wide variety of disease-related organizations across the United States.

IP TAKE: This is a fairly approachable funder, although smaller outfits may face competition with larger national organizations.

PROFILE: The Rosenthal Family Foundation is the personal foundation of director and producer Rick Rosenthal and his wife Nancy. The foundation does not operate a website or employ a formal staff. It might be more difficult for grantseekers to connect with this particular funder. However, Rosenthal supports a variety of disease-fighting outfits across the United States.

Many of Rosenthal’s disease-related grants are awarded to the larger, better-known national organizations, such as the American Cancer Society and local chapters of the Alzheimer’s Association. Past tax filings show a preference for California-based organizations, however, and it has awarded grants to groups in other states. 

Rosenthal’s grants are modest, typically ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. The Rosenthal Family Foundation accepts unsolicited grant applications and requests for funding. The foundation does not offer any specific formats for submissions nor does it have deadlines for applications. Grant applications should be addressed to the attention of Nancy Stephens.
