Grant Guidelines

Jeremiah Milbank created The JM Foundation in 1924. He was an ardent believer in individual liberty, limited government, and free markets.

The Foundation’s current priorities include:

  • Supporting education and research that fosters market-based policy solutions, especially at state think tanks.
  • Developing state and national organizations that promote free enterprise, entrepreneurship, and private initiative
  • Identifying and educating young leaders

To be eligible for funding by the Foundation, an organization must be located in the United States and tax-exempt under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation cannot provide grants to individuals. As a general rule, the Foundation does not provide annual funding.
