Charles E. Kaufman Foundation of The Pittsburgh Foundation
For the Attention of Grant Applicants
The major share of the late Charles Kaufman’s approximate $50 million bequest to The Pittsburgh Foundation will expand one of his funds at the Foundation, the Charles E. Kaufman Foundation, to provide one of the biggest grantmaking resources for scientific research in the state of Pennsylvania.
The fund will receive between $35 million and $40 million from his estate over the next 12 months and will support scientific research activities in chemistry, biology and physics, which may include endowed chairs, fellowships, and awards “for achievement in and contribution to the field and humanity.”
The transfer to the Foundation of proceeds from Mr. Kaufman’s estate will continue to be administered in 2011 by his attorneys. It is anticipated that the Foundation will begin awarding grants from Mr. Kaufman’s fund in 2012, and the Foundation cannot accept proposals or requests for funding at this time.
The Foundation will this year develop processes and systems to administer what we expect to be a significant grantmaking program. We will post further information here as it becomes available, and detailed guidelines will be provided for grant applications at the appropriate time.
We thank you for your patience as we continue this process.
