Our Funding

The Walder Foundation has joined other Chicago-based philanthropists to respond to COVID-19. Read more about how we are supporting individuals and organizations during this time.

Philanthropy at the Foundation takes many forms including grantmaking, programs, competitions, awards, scholarships, fellowships, program-related investments (PRIs), events to connect partners and grantees, and the distribution of knowledge and learning.

At this time, grants are by invitation only. Future funding opportunities will be announced as they become available. Please be sure to register for email so you can receive news or announcements about the Walder Foundation, including opportunities for funding.
