Funding Priorities
The Foundation has identified four funding strategies- Youth, Parenting, Older Adults, and End-of-Life Care- that work together to enhance families across all generations. Please see our homepage for a description of these strategies.

Geographic Focus
The Nordblom Family Foundation supports projects in the state of Massachusetts.

Applicants to the foundation must be 501(c) (3) organizations working in the Foundation’s fields of interest. The Foundation will not make grants directly to individuals or to other private foundations.

Types of Grants
The Foundation will consider requests for program grants for organizations that operate multiple programs, and core mission support grants for organizations that operate a singular program. Grant sizes will vary in relevance to the size of the project and organizational budgets of applicants. Grant size will normally range from $10,000 to $50,000, with occasional larger grants reserved for special circumstances.

Application Process
If applicants are invited to submit a Letter of Intent, they will receive a call or letter from the Foundation’s staff. Details of full proposal application requirements and deadlines will be made available at the time of invitation. An invitation to submit a full proposal should not be considered a guarantee that support will be forthcoming.
