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 though smaller outfits may have to elbow past larger national organizations to gain Rosenthal’s attentions.

PROFILE: The Rosenthal Family Foundation does not operate a website and while its board members receive some compensation, the foundation does not 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, if modestly.

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. As mentioned previously, grant amounts are modest, typically ranging from $1,000 to $10,000.

Past tax filings show a preference for California-based organizations. This isn’t a hard and fast rule, however, and grants have been awarded to groups in other states. 

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.
