In 2016, the B.A. Rudolph Foundation expanded its support of women by creating a Sponsorship and Grants fund. This fund supports organizations, groups, events, projects or programs that are consistent with the mission and values of the B.A. Rudolph Foundation (provided they are used in accord with the Foundation’s Bylaws). The B.A. Rudolph Foundation is committed to the principle of diversity in all areas. In that spirit, we are particularly dedicated to reaching and supporting a broad spectrum of qualified women who have diverse backgrounds, experiences, ability and perspectives. In 2016, the Foundation awarded two grants:
