Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

While the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation occasionally receives letters of inquiry, it should be understood that unsolicited proposals and letters of inquiry rarely develop into a grant, and are not encouraged. Most Foundation grants result from our consultations with experts in our three focus areas to proactively identify organizations whose approaches match our strategies and priorities. Once identified, the Foundation works in partnership with these organizations to co-create programs that advance our areas of focus.

Other organizations actively pursuing our objectives, and who wish to inform us of their work, may nevertheless submit an informative two-page letter highlighting the following: the organization?s mission, goals, strategies, history, and the programmatic and geographic scope of its activities. However, the Foundation does not normally respond to these inquiries, other than to acknowledge their receipt.
