The Milbank Foundation was created in 1995 to pursue Jeremiah Milbank’s vision of integrating people with disabilities into all aspects of American life.
The Foundation’s current priorities include:
- Consumer-oriented projects that enable people with disabilities to lead fulfilling, independent lives
- Innovative policy research and education on market-based approaches to health care and rehabilitation
- Improving and expanding quality health services, especially palliative care
- Education and training of health and rehabilitation professionals
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.
