As you will read in the blue box to the right, the van Ameringen Foundation has suspended its open LOI process for the remainder of 2020. We are moving considerable resources to protect vulnerable people and communities hardest hit by the COVID-19 outbreak in New York City and Philadelphia, in addition to honoring our prior-year commitment grants.
Please check our website on or about October 1, 2020 to learn more about our application process in 2021.
For the remainder of 2020, we have suspended our open LOI process in order to respond in a timely manner to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
On a rolling basis, the van Ameringen Foundation staff will contact those organizations from whom we would like to receive an LOI.
Decisions on grants are made by the Foundation’s Board of Directors, which ordinarily meets two times each year—in June and November—to consider grant proposals. To respond more effectively to the risk and impact of COVID-19 in the most vulnerable communities, the Board of Directors is meeting on a more frequent basis in 2020.

For the November 2020 grants cycle, we are suspending the open LOI process to prioritize new grant proposals benefitting communities and neighborhoods hardest hit by the Coronavirus pandemic in New York City and Philadelphia.
