Funding Interests

The Sarah K. de Coizart Article TENTH Perpetual Charitable Trust (the Trust) was established in 1992 upon the death of Mrs. de Coizart. JPMorgan Chase Bank (the Bank) and Mr. Richard Bartholomae serve as co-Trustees on the account.

Species Conservation

The Trust may support a range of projects dealing with wildlife and species conservation, including the protection of ecologically important areas with a specific species impact. While broader environmental conservation requests may be considered, competitive applications should focus on the impact on particular endangered or at-risk species.

Grants will focus exclusively on project support and will range in size from $20,000 to $75,000 per year. Multi-year commitments will be considered. Priority will be given to projects focused on the tri-state area and New England.

Blindness

Grants in the area of blindness and vision impairments include a broad range of services and research. Service-related grants may include expansion of existing services, implementation of new efforts and improvements of infrastructure to facilitate services. No grants will be considered to substitute lost government funding. Priority will be given to programs serving the Northeast United States. Research grants will primarily be considered through disease associations or other intermediaries with re-granting programs guided by scientific advisory committees. Preference will be given to efforts that support emerging research talent, innovative treatment or early detection studies.
