Funding the ABCs of research: applied, basic, clinical and everything in between.

Advice for grantseekers.

For starters, have you been invited to apply for a grant from the Bachrach Family Foundation?  If so, read on.

  • Complete every question in the application portal. Don’t make us chase you down for more information.

  • Be direct. Be clear.  Be concise.  You get the picture.

  • Share honestly both the positives and the negatives. We believe in the great power and value of learning from mistakes, and we won’t hold them against you.  Research is risky.  We get it.

  • Think carefully about our “but-for” funding strategy. If others are funding it, we may not be as interested.

  • Every grant award comes with some strings attached: a biannual review/progress report evaluating the project’s milestones.

If you’ve been given access to the Foundation’s grant portal, you’re welcome to access it anytime.

Take a moment to introduce yourself.

The Bachrach Family Foundation, Inc. is “by invitation only” and does not accept unsolicited proposals.  If you think you may be a candidate for research funding, please take a moment to submit your information and share your story.  Remember to translate your scientific jargon to simple language.  We are only interested in funding research that does not have government, industry, or other philanthropic support.

Now for the serious grants policy.

The Bachrach Family Foundation will consider inviting grant applications from organizations located in the United States of America that have been determined by the Internal Revenue Service to be exempt from tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and to be public charities described in Section 509(a)(1), (2) or (3) of the Internal Revenue Code (“501(c)(3) Public Charities”).  501(c)(3) Public Charities classified under Section 509(a)(3) of the Code may be required to submit additional information.
