The Glenn Family Foundation initiates its grants and does not publicly solicit proposals. Trustees and staff conduct research, attend site visits and other learning events to determine grantmaking priorities.
Principal giving interests are currently focused on public education, mental health, breast cancer research and healthy food access. Most grants are made to organizations serving metropolitan Atlanta. Grants are usually made for strategic purposes that significantly enhance an organization’s effectiveness or capacity and leverage other sources of support. The Foundation often attempts to address organizational needs that might not easily be funded by other sources such as capacity building, infrastructure, program scaling or operating needs.
Since its inception, the Foundation has channeled more than $100 million into higher education, K-12 public schools, medical research, healthy food access, green space and public parks, and other community needs.
Grants are limited to tax-exempt charities.
