Founded in 1945, the J.M. Kaplan Fund is a family foundation with a longstanding history of advocacy for and support of social, artistic, and environmental causes. The fund’s current initiatives are dedicated to social justice, the environment, and historic conservation.

In honor of its history and mission, the fund is accepting applications for the 2019 J.M.K. Innovation Prize. Through the prize program, grants of up to $175,000 over three years will be awarded to ten early-stage innovators helming creative projects that stand to benefit numerous individuals, communities, and/or sectors. Project priorities include the preservation of natural resources and mitigation of the environmental impact of climate change; heritage conservation; and social justice-focused reforms of the criminal justice and immigration systems in the United States.

In addition to funding, the award includes significant in-kind support, including mentoring, community-driven learning experiences, media training, and resources for board/organizational development.

Application for the prize is a two-step process, with initial applications due by April 30, 2019. Applicants selected to move forward will be asked to submit additional information in the late spring, with finalists invited to present their ideas in person to the fund’s trustees in the fall. Awardees will be announced in November 2019.

See the J. M. Kaplan Fund website for detailed program guidelines, application instructions, and a list of previously funded projects.
