Booth Ferris Foundation

Information About the Trust and Grant Program

The Booth Ferris Foundation was established in 1957 under the wills of Willis H. Booth and his wife, Chancie Ferris Booth. Since that time, approximately $281 million has been contributed from the Foundation to worthy organizations for a variety of charitable purposes. Grants are made to charitable organizations that are exempt from federal taxes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and that are not classified as private foundations.

In 2021 more than $10.6M was distributed through 73 grants.

Requests for interviews prior to proposal submission will be considered on a case-by-case basis between October 15 and January 15. Staff will follow-up for additional interviews, as needed, during the proposal review period.

We will make every effort to inform applicants promptly if their proposal will not be successful. An applicant whose proposal has been turned down is not encouraged to apply again until the following calendar year.

Grants are not made to organizations whose primary work is conducted outside of the United States, and grants are not made to individuals, to federated campaigns or to work with specific diseases or disabilities. Proposals from educational institutions for scholarships and fellowships and for unrestricted endowment are discouraged, as are proposals for individual research efforts at such institutions. Proposals from social services and cultural institutions from outside the metropolitan New York area will not be considered.
