Funding limit: The Weeden Foundation’s current level of grantmaking has been reduced as compared to that of several years ago, a consequence of the Foundation’s diminished endowment. Thus, priority is given to returning grant recipients. The Foundation does not currently entertain multi-year support requests. The average grant size is between $15,000 and $20,000, and only under exceptional circumstances do grants exceed $20,000.
