There are few private foundations dedicated to funding projects and programs focused on the Greek American and Orthodox community of the Chicagoland area. In 2016, the Hellenic Foundation began awarding grants to support programs, projects and organizations supporting the needs of our community. Although significant, the Foundation’s resources are limited. Therefore, the reality may be that the Foundation may not be able to fund all, or even a fraction, of the worthy projects that are presented for consideration.
Our community is faced with a problem: the need for quality programs focused on the seniors, families and our youth. However, problems create opportunity. Therefore, in addition to accepting donations, the Foundation is actively seeking to partner with other philanthropists and foundations in the Greek American and Orthodox community for the purpose of creating opportunities for creative and essential projects, programs, and organizations that require resources and support to succeed.
Scrolled across the top of this page are organizations and programs that are enhancing the quality of life in our community through the support of the Hellenic Foundation’s Grant Program.
