About Us

History

The FAR Fund is a private grant-making fund established in 2001 and located in New York City. The Fund awards grants to a diverse range of non-profit organizations that are working toward far-reaching goals in their efforts to support the social and emotional well-being of the people they serve.

Mission

The FAR Fund provides funding to programs that promote healthy social and emotional development in children and families. The Fund has a particular, but not exclusive, interest in developmental disabilities as an area of funding. Organizations that clearly demonstrate a psychological sensibility in their work, philosophy, and leadership are particularly attractive to us. We also strongly consider the sustainability of the projects we support after the grant period ends.
