The Altman Foundation’s mission is to support programs and institutions that enrich the quality of life in New York City, with a particular focus on initiatives that help individuals, families, and communities benefit from the services and opportunities that will enable them to achieve their full potential. In carrying out its mission and making choices about how to invest its grantmaking dollars, the sponsor is guided in its selection process by several overarching values that cut across program-area lines. These values are access, system-wide improvement, prevention and early intervention, self-sufficiency, the provision of high-quality services, and a focus on vulnerable populations. The Altman Foundation: Seeks to increase meaningful access for New Yorkers to quality programs, institutions, and resources, both public and private; Encourages system-wide improvement and change while at the same time maintaining our tradition of direct service and the opportunity to test models in action; Prefers to support preventive and early intervention strategies; Supports efforts that help New Yorkers build and preserve self-sufficiency; Encourages innovation and funds programs and organizations that provide high-quality services based on best practices in their field and that exercise systematic efforts to track credible and meaningful results; and Has an interest in supporting programs that serve vulnerable populations, in particular - children and youth from underserved communities, immigrants, and the elderly. There are no deadlines for letters of inquiry. The foundation will review these in the order received and will contact you if further information is needed.
