The Heckscher Foundation for Children Grants
The Heckscher Foundation for Children funds organizations serving youth in the fields of education, family services, job training, health, arts and recreation. The foundation's giving takes the form of program support, capacity-building, capital projects and general operating support. The foundation does not participate in annual appeals, endowments, fundraising events or political efforts. Their primary geographic area of interest is New York City.
The Heckscher Foundation for Children seeks to 'level the playing field' for underserved youth. They stress the achievement of positive, measureable, clear outcomes and are particularly interested in programs that are prepared to critically evaluate their work.
