Active Grants and 990-PF

In 2017, The Clowes Fund awarded $2.2 million to 79 not-for-profit organizations in eight states through its competitive grant cycle; review a list here. In addition, the Fund transferred art valued at nearly half a million dollars to the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields in the same year.

The Clowes Fund is committed to providing information on our grantmaking activities in a clear and timely manner. We meet our goal of transparency, in part, through the yearly submission of the 990-PF. The 990-PF is the tax return private foundations file with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This public document provides fiscal data for the foundation, names of trustees and officers, application information and a complete grants list. You may read the Fund's IRS Form 990-PF at the GuideStar website.
