About the Foundation

The Simeon and Jean H. Locke Foundation, registered in Massachusetts, was established in 2018 as a 501(c)(3) entity.

Funding Interests

The Foundation’s goals are two-fold:

  • Providing educational opportunity for very bright young children from disadvantaged backgrounds:

    The Foundation welcomes proposals for grants from educational organizations working with disadvantaged children who are exceptionally intelligent who might be overlooked in conventional settings. Typical grants will be given for the purchase of educational equipment and materials.

  • Addressing urgent environmental and conservation issues:

    Throughout their lives the founders were contributors to various conservation efforts both regional and international. The urgency of environmental problems has reached alarming proportions in recent years on a world-wide scale. The Foundation remains dedicated to assisting efforts to ameliorate deteriorating environmental conditions.
