Active Grants

Below is a list of the “active” grants of the Flinn Foundation—those grants that have been awarded and (a) have yet to receive final payment; and/or (b) for which grant-related activities have not concluded. Many Flinn Foundation grants are multiple-year awards that receive payments throughout the duration of the grant.

This list is not comprehensive, as it excludes grants for membership dues to philanthropic organizations and other miscellaneous awards, but represents the Foundation’s project-specific grant-making activity to achieve its strategic programmatic goals. A complete list of all grants is included in the latest annual report of the Foundation, available for viewing and download in Publications and Multimedia.
