Mission

The Alfred Bersted Foundation was established in 1972 to support and promote quality educational, human services and health care programming for underserved populations. The Alfred Bersted Foundation specifically serves the people of DeKalb, DuPage, Kane and McHenry counties in Illinois.

Guidelines

The application deadlines for the Alfred Bersted Foundation are January 15 and June 15. In general, applicants for the January deadline will be notified by April 15 and applicants to the June deadline will be notified by September 30.

Applicant organizations must have a physical presence in 1 of the following counties: DeKalb, DuPage, Kane or McHenry.

The Alfred Bersted Foundation does not make grants to degree-conferring institutions of higher education, religious houses of worship or organizations testing for public safety.

In general, grant requests for endowment campaigns will not be considered.

The majority of grants from the Alfred Bersted Foundation are 1 year in duration.

Because requests for support usually exceed available resources, organizations can only apply to either the Grace Bersted Foundation or the Alfred Bersted Foundation in the same calendar year. Grant requests to both foundations during the same calendar year will no longer be accepted.
