Puffin Foundation Ltd.
Application Request
20 Puffin Way
Teaneck, NJ 07666-4111The Foundation requests that previous grantees allow a one-year hiatus prior to reapplication. This allows our grants to be available to an even wider number of applicants. Applicants may only submit one proposal per year. Requests for the same project should not be made by multiple applicants.

Grants from the Puffin Foundation, Ltd. can only be awarded to permanent residents and citizens of the United States. U.S. citizens whose projects encompass work in other countries are still eligible to apply.

We are not able to provide status reports about the disposition of submitted applications, so PLEASE do not call seeking such information. Applicants will be notified on an ongoing basis about the decision on their application from January 15th through July.

The Foundation does not have the means to fund large film/documentary proposals, grants for travel, continuing education, or the writing or publishing of books. Average grants are approximately $1,250. The maximum grant size is $2,500. Please note that organizations with an annual budget of more than $500,000 and any project whose total budget exceeds $250,000 are not eligible for funding.
