Brief: The late Serena S. Merck founded The John Merck Fund, a New York charitable trust named for her son, in 1970. For the first sixteen years, The Fund worked exclusively to support research into children’s developmental disabilities. Beginning in 1986, it added programs in other fields that also were of concern to Mrs. Merck and her late husband, George W. Merck. Currently, The Fund has four program areas: Developmental Disabilities, Climate and Clean Energy, Environmental Health and Rural New England.
Thrust Areas: Developmental Disabilities, Climate and Clean Energy, Environmental Health and Rural New England.
Funding Opportunity: Environmental Health
Who Can Apply: Grants are generally limited to the United States, with some rare exceptions. It does not encourage the submission of unsolicited proposals. However, organizations interested in obtaining support for work they do in one of JMF's program areas are welcome to send a brief email or letter of inquiry— an email with a letter of inquiry attached is preferable.
