IP TAKE: This funder awards science research grants to larger research programs as well as individual investigators.

PROFILE: Dana and Albert “Cubby” Broccoli established the Dana and Albert Broccoli Foundation in 1981. Though this Los Angeles, California based foundation is sizable in terms of assets, it maintains a low public profile, does not operate a website and does not employ a formal staff. According to tax filings, the foundation’s funding interests appear to be the arts, education, education, health and human services. Although Broccoli does not have a specific program dedicated to science research, it has a history of supporting such projects.

Grant amounts range from $2,000 to $400,000 foundation wide; however, most scientific research grants fall in the $10,000 to $100,000 range. Past science research grantees include the Carnegie Science Institute, which received funding to help support its Science Venture grants program; and UCLA, which received a grant to support Dr. R. Edgerton’s research in bioengineering and physiology.

The Dana and Albert Broccoli Charitable Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
