Turrell Fund Application Guidelines

Turrell Fund grants for at-risk youth are awarded to organizations which provide or foster the creation and delivery of quality developmental and educational services to at-risk children, especially the youngest, and their families, in Vermont and, primarily in the New Jersey counties of Essex, Hudson, Passaic and Union. One year must elapse before applying again.

The Turrell Fund actively considers programs of exceptional merit serving the youngest children with emphasis on birth to five. Note, however, that favored programs, in the birth to five range, are those operating in parts of our served area where the number and quality of educational and developmental alternatives are limited, and the relative concentration of at-risk children is high. Successful applicants requesting a grant to service this age category must have demonstrated results, supported by rigorous measurement and analysis.

Our Online Application System

The Turrell Fund requires all grant-seekers to submit their applications online. Please visit Apply for Support for specific instructions on the use of the online system.
