Call For Nominations of Eligible Families

Call for Nominations

The Foundation welcomes nominations of eligible families. One can submit a nomination online or download a hardcopy nomination form (147 Kb MS Word document). Once completed, the form can be faxed to (202) 223-4745 attention Kelly Bielen or mailed to:

The Bollinger Foundation
c/o IEDC
734 15th St. NW / Suite 900
Washington, DC 20005

The deadline for applications is May 18, 2011.



We welcome the nominations of families in which the deceased parent worked – or the surviving parent continues to work – in the field of public or affordable housing, or community and economic development. To date, the Bollinger Foundation has not awarded grants outside of this priority area, and is unlikely to do so in the future.

The Foundation primarily provides funds for children’s education. This can include – but is not limited to – grants towards special educational needs, school materials, and college tuition. We have also awarded funds for counseling and other special needs.

Our Board of Directors will carefully consider each application. Grants are awarded based on a family’s need; there have been families where there was a devastating loss of a parent but, as there was little financial need, a grant was not awarded.


Deadline for Applications

The deadline for submitting grant applications is May 18, 2011. Please be sure to submit your application online, via email to, or by fax at (202) 223-4745 by the deadline.
