Grants

Below is a list of the “active” grants of the Flinn Foundation—those that have been awarded and have yet to receive final payment. Most Flinn grants are multiple-year awards that receive payments throughout the duration of the grant. This list is not comprehensive, as it excludes grants for membership dues to philanthropic organizations and other miscellaneous awards, but represents the Foundation’s project-specific grantmaking activity to achieve its strategic programmatic goals. Complete listings of all grants are included in the annual reports available in Publications and Multimedia.
