from the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation


On-line discretionary grant applications for the Spring cycle are available.
The deadline date is March 15, 2017 @ 5:00 p.m.
If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Renz at renz@duanemorris.com

THE TRUSTEES WILL ACCEPT ONLY THOSE APPLICATIONS ACTUALLY RECEIVED ON OR BEFORE MARCH 15th @ 5:00 P.M., FOR THE SPRING SEASON, OR SEPTEMBER 15th @ 5:00 P.M., FOR THE FALL SEASON.

Generally speaking, the Trustees of the Lindback Foundation make discretionary grants for the initiation or support of:

  • Educational programs; or
  • Ordinary operating support; or
  • Experimental or demonstrational projects; or
  • So-called “seed money” projects; or
  • A project which can reasonably be expected to be accomplished by a single grant in a relatively brief period of time.
  • New proposal requests which are accepted once per calendar year. In the case of an ongoing multi-yr. grant, applicant must wait until multi-yr. grant has been completed.

THE FOUNDATION DOES NOT, EXCEPT IN THE RAREST INSTANCES, MAKE GRANTS FOR:

  • Projects beyond the limits of the Greater Philadelphia area.
  • Creation of or additions to endowment.
  • Medical or scientific research.
  • Projects for the construction, renovation or acquisition of physical facilities (real estate or buildings; or equipment or supplies, except in cases where the equipment or supplies are merely incidental to the primary purposes of the project).
  • Projects which will likely entail grants from the Foundation beyond a period of three years or which may not reasonably be expected to be self-supporting thereafter.
  • To applicants respectively year after year.
  • To individuals for scholarship or research purposes.
  • For special interest advocacy through legislative lobbying, focused litigation or solicitation of governmental agencies.
