The Pennsylvania Abolition Society seeks proposals for its annual grants to its fund established at The Philadelphia Foundation.
501(c)(3) organizations and programs working to improve conditions of African Americans throughout Pennsylvania are encouraged to apply. Past awardees include the Abolitionist Law Center for its Human Rights Report on the Death Penalty; Art-Reach for its Celebration of African American Art; the Belmont Mansion’s “Heritage for the Future” Docent Training Camp, and Chester County Historical Society for the conservation of Passmore Williamson’ Visitor’s book. You can find a partial list of past grantees at: http://www.paabolition.org/grants.html. Grants range in size from $500-2,000; some larger grants have been awarded depending on circumstances. The Society does not award grants for endowment appeals, and rarely awards to the same institution in consecutive years.
The deadline for submission is December 31, 2014. For information on how to apply, visit the Pennsylvania Abolition Society’s website.
