Mellon and Other Foundations Commit $1.7 Billion+ to Nonprofits Devastated by Global Pandemic

 The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation announced today that it has joined forces with Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Ford Foundation, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in a dramatic $1.7 billion-plus commitment to shore up struggling nonprofits.   

The Foundation will dedicate an additional $200 million in grantmaking – on top of its $300 million originally planned for 2020 – for emergency support to nonprofits in higher education, the arts, and humanities. 

The giving helps stabilize these institutions during the interconnected crises of a global pandemic, a national economic depression, and the effects of racial injustice, and ultimately​ will help fortify nonprofit infrastructure and reimagined programming of nonprofits in education.
