Request Funding

Thank you for your interest in the work of the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation, Inc. and contributing to our mission through your own work.

Grant Requests in the U.S.

To be considered for a grant from the Foundation in the U.S., you must be designated a 501c3 public charity. Twice a year (July and December), we review requests and award grants to support work that helps stop bullying, helps those hurt by bullying and/or helps increase equality and diversity in sports. We regret we cannot offer support to work outside of these areas. In addition, we do not support requests for event or conference sponsorship, for performances, films or movie productions. We generally prefer to make smaller, more frequent grants ($10,000 or less) but will consider all requests within our means and mission. As of now, we are only able to support organizations in the United States.

The deadlines for the US Foundation in 2015 are on hold. We will make and announcement about our 2015 priorities and grants in February.
