About Us

The Gould Charitable Foundation

 is a philanthropic trust created as a memorial to the late

Robert L. Gould

Our mission is to assist organizations in improving the communities where Mr. Gould lived and worked -- the greater metropolitan areas of Boston and Kansas City -- by making grants to fund projects at 501(c)(3) charitable organizations whose vision and goals are aligned with our areas of interest.

We are currently most interested in funding programs in the following areas (in alphabetic order):

Elder Services

Environmental Stewardship

Health Care

Preservation of Personal Rights

Training for the Disadvantaged

Welfare and Education of Children

Women's Issues

We have particular interest in funding innovative projects rather than ongoing maintenance or capital campaigns, with priority given to moderately-sized projects for which the foundation's contribution can comprise a significant portion of the project's budget. We also give priority to projects that have high leveraging potential in terms of expansion and/or replication.

Charitable organizations that service the target geographic areas and match our interests are encouraged to apply for funding.
