Wallace H. Coulter Foundation: Grants for Diseases

OVERVIEW: The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation supports disease organizations in the United States and around the world.

IP TAKE: This funder awards both program specific and general operating support grants.

PROFILE: Established in 1998 with funding from Wallace Coulter’s estate, the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation’s grantmaking is “[d]esigned to address the underserved, under-resources and/or under-represented.” Grant programs include Translational Research, Colleges, Universities & Societies and Sharing the American Dream. Although the foundation does not have a grantmaking program specifically dedicated to diseases and disease organizations, it supports such organizations through its Translational Research program.  

Coulter Foundation grant amounts range widely form $1,000 to nearly $10 million. The majority of grants fall in the $25,000 to $250,000 range. Past disease related grantees include European Hematology Association, which received funding to support its translational research in hematology and oncology; and the Lupus Foundation of America, which received a grant to support its Lupus research activities.

The foundation appears to accept unsolicited grant applications and requests for funding; however, its guidelines, eligibility requirements and grantmaking processes are unclear. Grantseekers are encouraged to contact foundation staff for additional information.
