Jean and Louis Dreyfus Foundation, Inc.
Note: Until further notice, the Foundation will be accepting letters of inquiry only from organizations that have a prior relationship with the Foundation. We ask that all other grant seekers refrain from sending letters at this time.

Application Procedure

The initial approach to the Foundation should consist of a two-page letter of inquiry describing the organization requesting support and outlining the project in question. Letters should be addressed to:

Ms. Edmée de M. Firth
Executive Director
Jean and Louis Dreyfus Foundation, Inc.
64 West 48th Street, Suite 1408
New York, NY 10036

Phone: (212) 599-1931
Fax: (646) 992-8091

Letters of inquiry for initial approach are due postmarked no later than January 15th and July 15th for the Spring and Fall cycles respectively. All such inquiries will be acknowledged with a letter of receipt, and further communication will follow if further information is required or if a full proposal is being requested (the foundation uses its own application form). Letters received later than the established deadlines will be automatically held until the next review cycle. Any discussion or indication of interest concerning a grant inquiry or application should not be construed as a commitment by the Foundation.
