Funding Priorities

The Board of Replogle Foundation focuses its giving on the following areas:

Programs addressing the needs of youth and children, and women with children living in, or at risk of, long-term poverty (especially children of inner-city residents). Of particular interest are:

  • Programs designed to address immediate crisis situations and the provision of stabilization services;
  • Programs designed to assist individuals in developing skills for self-sufficiency and to be able to participate constructively in society and the workforce;
  • Programs designed to provide supplementary services to improve educational opportunities for inner city children, including enrichment programs in the arts and sciences, alternative schools, after-school tutoring and mentoring, and scholarship programs.
  • Programs for affordable and supportive housing with a focus on single mothers and families with children, and youth on their own.

The Replogle Foundation gives strong preference to innovative programs and those organizations with small or modest operating budgets located in the following geographic areas: Chicago, Minneapolis, and Washington, DC.
