In addition to grant making through our main program areas, we occasionally undertake major initiatives that reflect elements of all our programs. These Special Initiatives usually require significant funding over a period of years in an effort to make a groundbreaking impact in a particular area.

Many of our Special Initiatives—including GrantCraft and the International Fellowships Program—have evolved into stand-alone organizations.

  • International Fellowships ProgramInternational Fellowships Program Offers advanced studies to a new generation of leaders in communities outside of the United States that lack access to higher education.
  • GrantCraftGrantCraft Provides a source of practical wisdom for grant makers, offering tools and techniques for effective grant making.
  • Good Neighbor CommitteeGood Neighbor Committee Supports organizations and activities in the community surrounding our New York City headquarters.
