Our Grant Program

The Foundation is actively seeking to partner with nonprofit organizations, with 501(C)(3) tax- exempt status, whose programs and projects benefit the Greek American and the Orthodox Christian community of the Chicagoland area. The Grant Program aim is to nurture and advance activities which contribute to the culture, humanities, education, youth development, senior programs, and philanthropy.
The Hellenic Foundation is a self-funded private independent foundation. The Foundation’s Grant Program is funded on an annual basis through earnings realized from its investment program. Therefore, the scope of the programs and geographic areas supported by the donor program is limited to insure that sufficient funds are available to fund organizations whose programs and projects support the Foundation’s efforts to fulfill its Mission.

Our Impact

In an effort to realize its Vision and fulfill its Mission, the Hellenic Foundation initiated its Grant Program on January 1, 2016. Since that time, the Hellenic Foundation has awarded 79 grant requests with more than $1,749,000 specifically for programs and projects benefiting Chicagoland’s Greek and Orthodox Christian communities.

“We are abundantly grateful for the vision and support we receive from the Hellenic Foundation. Their unwavering support of Telos Gamma is enabling us to transform the future of our parishes by investing in our young adults. The Hellenic Foundation has made this critical work possible; we are honored to be entrusted to carry out this ministry.”
