Funding Guidelines

The Patrina Foundation is presently concentrating its funding in the New York Metropolitan area and surrounding counties.

Grants are made exclusively to tax-exempt organizations, with the exception of private foundations. Grantees are primarily educational, cultural, and social service organizations which promote academic, artistic, athletic, job skills, life skills, and/or leadership abilities of girls and women.  We do not fund individuals.

The Foundation makes four (4) types of grants: 1) seed money for start-up organizations or start-up programs, 2) one-time grants to solve a problem or build capacity, 3) muiti-year funding to follow a cohort of participants through a program, and 4) renewable ongoing support.  Organizations may only apply for funding once a year, except through a Board request.

Please call Kara D'Angelo at 914-886-5390 with questions.
