Our Grantmaking

Grantmaking Process

Because our funding vision is carefully curated, we do not accept unsolicited proposals. In addition, the Foundation does not provide funding for the following:

  • General operating support for ongoing activities
  • Loans or debt retirement
  • Annual appeals, federated campaigns, general fund drives, special events, or sponsorships
  • Projects of organizations whose policies or practices discriminate on the basis of ethnic origin, gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation
  • Sectarian or religious organizations whose principal activity is for the benefit of their own members or adherents
  • Indirect Costs

Policy on Donations: The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation does not accept donations.
