Kresge Foundation’s Human Services Program supports the advancement of
human services to accelerate social and economic mobility for people with
low income in America’s cities. One of the program’s focus areas,
“Advancing innovative, multi-sectoral policy solutions in human services,”
supports efforts to change the way the human services sector operates
through testing, disseminating, and advocating for policy-driven approaches
to improving social and economic mobility. The focus is on helping
groundbreaking ideas enter the mainstream at the state and national level
and encouraging collaboration across multiple sectors, including the public
sector, private sector, and nonprofit sector. Nonprofit organizations and
government entities are eligible to apply. Online applications may be
submitted throughout the year. Visit the Foundation’s website for more

*Advertising Costs for Nonprofit Organizations SupportedTemper of the Times
Foundation <>*
Temper of the Times Foundation promotes the use of standard marketing
concepts to increase awareness about environmental issues. Recognizing that
organizations working to protect the environment often have limited access
to paid media, the Foundation provides funds to underwrite advertising
designed to promote the conservation and restoration of native wildlife,
plants, and ecosystems in the United States. Grants ranging from $5,000 to
$15,000 may be used to fund the production of print, radio, or television
ads; to pay for advertising space or airtime; or to produce or distribute
pamphlets, books, videos, or press packets. The application deadline is
December 17, 2018. Visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about the
application process.

lifelong altruistic commitment of its founders. The Foundation is currently
accepting project and program ideas that address the following categories:
The Environment Program supports collaborative efforts that will help to
accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy, especially efforts
that bridge climate and democracy. The Make Democracy Work Program supports
initiatives that will help to increase access to the ballot box in Florida
and North Carolina. The Reproductive Health and Justice Program supports
state-based organizations that will help to improve access to abortion and
contraception across the United States, with a particular focus on
Appalachia. Project and program ideas for all three categories may be
