The Carnegie Corporation grants nearly $27 million
January 04, 2013
The Carnegie Corporation, the organization that was established by oil baron Andrew Carnegie in 1911 to spread knowledge and understanding throughout the United States, recently granted $26.9 million to groups
that are supporting its primary causes - international and domestic programs, special opportunities funds and Centennial work.
Through the money allocated to through the Carnegie Corporation's Special Opportunities Fund, National Public Radio, Inc. will receive a $40,000 award over the next year to continue reporting international affairs. The other grant - worth $210,000 - was set aside for the Central European University in New York to be dispersed over the next two years. This will allow the institution to fund its Richard C. Holbrooke Center for Conflict Resolution And the Prevention of Genocide.
Grant winners for international programs include the Aspen Institute in Washington, D.C., for its work in the Congressional Program on U.S. Policy Challenges in South Asia, the International Peace Institute in New York that will enable the organization to improve its outreach, research and peacebuilding efforts in Africa.
Foundations and organizations that provide annual funding might benefit from nonprofit accounting
software, which can help board members audit funds and make sure the correct amounts are being distributed to various programs each year.
