Blackstone Charitable Foundation Announces Second Annual Request for Proposal

The Blackstone Charitable Foundation recently announced that it is releasing its second Request for Proposal (RFP) targeting organizations that focus on entrepreneurship and innovation, as part of the Blackstone Organizational Grants Program. The same commitment last year drew proposals from nearly one hundred organizations around the world, of which the top nine were selected to receive an aggregate of $1 million in grants. This year, $1 million will be awarded to additional organizations, with another $500,000 designated to organizations previously awarded Blackstone Organizational Grants.

Through these grants, The Blackstone Charitable Foundation will help eligible organizations pilot, expand, or replicate entrepreneurial projects or programs that will catalyze the growth of successful businesses, industries, and communities. This program was launched in coordination with the Blackstone Charitable Foundation’s $50 million, five-year Entrepreneurship Initiative.
