Grant Philosophy

Pascale Sykes Foundation awarded substantial long-range grants to efforts meeting the criteria outlined in the Foundation’s Mission Statement. In Southern New Jersey grants were limited to collaborations. In Central New Jersey, Manhattan and South Bronx grants were limited to collaborations or agencies coordinating activities with other agencies.

Pascale Sykes considered grantmaking a partnership between each grantee and the Foundation. Grantees submitted three reports each year to be reviewed by the Board of Trustees which then provided feedback to grantees. Communication was open and frequent. Grantees were expected to notify the Foundation promptly of significant events or changes affecting or influencing program, policy or service delivery.
