The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation currently makes grants in five core program areas:
* Higher Education and Scholarship
* Scholarly Communications and Information Technology
* Art History, Conservation, and Museums
* Performing Arts
* Conservation and the Environment
Within each of its core programs, the Foundation concentrates most of its grantmaking in a few areas. Institutions and programs receiving support are often leaders in fields of Foundation activity, but they may also be promising newcomers, or in a position to demonstrate new ways of overcoming obstacles to achieve program goals.
Our grantmaking philosophy is to build, strengthen and sustain institutions and their core capacities, rather than be a source for narrowly defined projects. As such, we develop thoughtful, long-term collaborations with grant recipients and invest sufficient funds for an extended period to accomplish the purpose at hand and achieve meaningful results.
