Grant Awards by the James S. Kemper Foundation

(Revised April, 2012)
Given the reduction in the Foundation’s assets in the wake of the 2008-2009 economic recession, the Board of the James S. Kemper Foundation has determined that beginning with the 2013 cycle and for the foreseeable future, the Foundation will no longer accept letters-of-interest or proposals for grant funding except by invitation from the Foundation. Henceforth, the Foundation will fund only the Kemper Scholars Program and other projects and programs at the Foundation’s initiation.

The Board has made this decision with regret but felt it unfair to encourage potential grantees to spend the considerable effort necessary to prepare proposals which the Foundation could not fund. Should circumstances change, an announcement will be made at the Foundation’s website.
