Herb Block Foundation invites LOIs for projects to encourage citizen involvement
When Herb Block died in October 2001, he left $50 million with instructions to create a foundation to encourage the art of editorial cartooning and to support charitable and educational programs that help promote and support the causes he championed during his 72 years of cartooning. As such, the Herb Block Foundation is committed to defending basic freedoms, combating all forms of discrimination and prejudice, and improving the condition of the poor and underprivileged.
The foundation is inviting applications for its Encouraging Citizen Involvement program. This program seeks to help ensure a responsible, responsive democratic government through citizen involvement. Proposals may focus on citizen education and greater voter participation in the electoral process. All projects must be nonpartisan and may not involve lobbying for specific legislation or candidates. In addition to providing grants in this area, the foundation has initiated an annual public policy lecture program featuring prominent speakers on issues of national importance. Grants of between $5,000 and $25,000 will be awarded.
Applicants must be nonprofit organizations as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Letters of inquiry are due June 1, 2022, and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal, to be due August 18, 2022.
For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Herb Block Foundation website.
Deadline: June 1, 2022 (Letters of Inquiry)
