Active Grants

Below is a list of the “active” grants of the Flinn Foundation—those grants that have been awarded and have yet to receive final payment; and/or 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. In some cases, grants are extended (without additional funding provided) beyond their scheduled date of conclusion.

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 goals.
