Rosenberg Fund for Children Grant: Providing Educational and Emotional Needs to Children in US

Deadline: 13 October 2017

The Rosenberg Fund for Children is inviting applications for its Grant which provides educational and emotional needs to children (up to age 24) of targeted progressive activists, and youth (up to age 24) who are targeted activists themselves.

The RFC funds institutions and individual providers who support the values. Subject to their financial ability, the RFC will fund such things as: counseling; school tuition; camp tuition; cultural lessons; after-school programs; prison visits; educational or therapeutic travel; and post high-school books and supplies for college or other educational training.

Types of Grants & Funding Information

  • Regular Grants for children 18 and younger who are the children of targeted activist and targeted activist youth.
    • Funding Information: Up to $3000 per child per year ($2,000 limit per granting cycle). Open to the children of targeted activists and to targeted activist youth. Maximum of $7500 per family per granting cycle.
  • Carry It Forward Awards (CIF) to assist beneficiaries aged 19 through 24 with the cost of books and supplies associated with post-high school education and training.
    • Funding Information: Once a year award of $600 for books and educational supplies. Open to the children of targeted activists and to targeted activist youth.
  • Special development grants of up to $1000 per year for targeted activist youth ages 18 to 24 to further their education, support their emotional needs or develop their organizing skills.
    • Funding Information: Once a year award of up to $1000 to further their education, support their emotional needs or develop their organizing skills. Open to Targeted Activist Youth only.
  • Attica Fund Prison Visit Award to allow children and youth up to age 24 to visit activist parents from whom they have been separated because the activist parent(s) has been imprisoned.
    • Funding Information: Once a year award of up to $2000 per family for up to 3 visits per year. Open to the children of targeted activists and to targeted activist youth.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applications may be submitted by parents, custodians, and guardians to benefit children (under age 18) in the United States whose parents’ pursuit of progressive values has left them unable to fully provide for that child as a result of being targeted as outlined above.
  • The young adult children (ages 18-24) of targeted activists may submit applications on their own behalf.
  • Applications may also be submitted by or on behalf of targeted activist youth (under age 25) whose targeting has resulted in a significant adverse life impact.
  • Although RFC usually receive applications from parents on behalf of their children, in special cases (for instance when anonymity is required for personal safety) they accept applications directly from a program or provider on behalf of a group of young people who meet their granting guidelines.
