Beginning March 16, 2020, to help minimize the spread of COVID-19, Walder Foundation staff will be working remotely. Staff will not be traveling or hosting meetings at the Foundation. Instead, meetings will take place through video conference or telephone. We do not anticipate any disruption to our grantee commitments or general day-to-day operations.

The Walder Foundation is a private family foundation based in the Chicago area that provides individuals and organizations with resources and tools to create more welcoming and vibrant communities.

We want to bring together our long-term perspectives and the wisdom we have gathered throughout our lives to direct our giving for the benefit of humanity.
