Application Procedure

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, and/or life skills and leadership abilities of girls and women.

The Foundation makes three (3) types of grants: 1)  support a new or ongoing program, 2) seed money for start-ups or 3) one-time grants to solve a problem or build capacity.  In certain situations, we will entertain a multi-year grant to follow a cohort of participants through a program.  Please contact Kara D'Angelo karadangelo@patrinafoundation.org or 914-886-5390 to discuss.
