The Caroline Alexander Buck Foundation strives to improve the quality of life for children in the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area.

We are dedicated to supporting organizations educating children and fostering their growth into productive and engaged members of their communities. We specifically focus our funding on programs that provide educational opportunities and support to children from preschool through high school as well as on programs that provide necessary social services support to children and their families.

We invite public charities providing direct services to children and their families in alignment with our mission to apply for a grant.

The Directors meet twice a year in the spring and fall to review grant requests.  Grant requests should be submitted by January 31 for consideration in the spring and July 31 for consideration in the fall.
