Mattel Children’s Foundation Announces Second Year of Domestic Grantmaking Program
Deadline: April 7, 2006

Mattel, Inc. (<a href=""></a>) and the Mattel Children’s Foundation (<a href=""></a>) have announced the second year of the foundation’s Domestic Grantmaking Program.

Through this effort, unsolicited applications for funds from organizations working to benefit children in need in the United States are accepted. Organizations with 501(c) (3) public charity status that are able to demonstrate they directly serve children in need may be eligible for grants of up to $25,000.

Applicant organizations must have a mission that focuses on direct service to children up to 12 years old. Priority will be given to organizations or programs that use creative and/or innovative methods to address a locally defined need directly impacting children in need and that align with Mattel’s philanthropic priorities, which include learning, health, and girl empowerment.

Applicant organizations must have an annual operating budget of less than $1 million. Organizations may not be affiliated in any way with national organizations, regardless of whether funds are received from the national entity. Organizations may submit under a fiscal agent as long as the program has been in existence for at least two years.

Two types of grants will be considered: 1) Program-specific grants, i.e., funding for the launch of new programs or expansion of existing programs; and 2) Core operating support, i.e., support for administrative and operating costs that help organizations to sustain their programs.

Applications must be submitted online through the Mattel Web site. See the site for complete program guidelines and eligibility information.
