The Max Kade Foundation is an endowed Private
Foundation. It only entertains proposals for grants from
educational institutions and/or charitable organizations that
have been determined by the Internal Revenue Service as
tax-exempt public charities under section 501(c)(3) of the
Tax Code.
 By law the Foundation does not approve any
grant proposals from individuals directly.
Mail Proposals to:

Lya Friedrich Pfeifer, JD
Max Kade Foundation, Inc.
6 E 87th St Fl 5
New York, NY 10128
All grant proposals should be in writing and addressed

Lya Friedrich Pfeifer, JD
Max Kade Foundation, Inc.
6 East 87th Street, Fifth Floor
New York, NY 10128
Applicants should submit a letter of request which
includes the following:

Name and address of applying organization;
A description of the proposed project and the
specific amount requested;
A copy of the organization’s IRS 501(c)(3)
determination letter;
The time frame of the project.
The Foundation does not accept grants via e-mail. Grant
requests may be submitted at any time during the year.
Larger grant proposals will be submitted for approval to the
Board of Directors which meets twice a year. Once grants
have been approved, any additional required information
would need to be furnished to the Foundation before the
actual grant is paid.

Multi-year grant commitments are not encouraged. It is the
policy of the Foundation to make grants only on a yearly
basis and only one grant
per applying organization can be
made for the same general purpose each year.

The Foundation requests that the recipients of our grants
submit a written report including all budget information upon
completion of the project or term of exchange. We expect
these reports to precisely describe the project and its
execution and account for the expenditures of all grant
funds. The Foundation specifically requests that the
approved grant funds be used only for the purpose for which
they were granted. Should there be an excess of funds, said
moneys must be refunded to the Foundation.
