T. Rowe Price Foundation: Grants for Diseases

OVERVIEW: The T. Rowe Price Foundation awards disease-related grants or organizations operating in the United States.

IP TAKE: This funder’s grants tend to support larger, more established institutions rather than community-based or grassroots organizations.

PROFILE: Established in 1981, the T. Rowe Price Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the financial services company T. Rowe Price. The foundation’s objectives are broad in that it is “supporting change and enhancing community life,” in its hometown of Baltimore, Maryland and around the globe. Its main focus areas include education, arts & culture, and human services.

Although its human services grantmaking focuses on “family and emergency services, workforce development, and other opportunities to build skills and achieve self-sufficiency” and does not have a specific disease focus, its tax filings indicate a strong grantmaking interest in this field. Past grantees in this space include local chapters of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, as well as, the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Foundation.

Grant amounts at T. Rowe Price vary widely from around $100 to $50,000.

The T. Rowe Price Foundation accepts unsolicited grant applications and requests for funding on a rolling basis.
