Mission

The G. A. Ackermann Memorial Fund was established under the will of Mrs. Mary A. Ackermann in 1937 to support quality health care and human services programming for underserved populations. According to Mrs. Ackermann’s wishes, the Ackermann Memorial Fund supports charitable organizations operated or controlled by the Roman Catholic church and/or members of the Roman Catholic Church, and charitable organizations operated or controlled by a Protestant Church and/or its members. Special consideration is given to hospitals.

Guidelines

The G. A. Ackermann Memorial Fund has biannual application deadlines of January 15 and June 1. Applicants for the January 15 deadline will be notified of grant decisions by June 30, and applicants for the June 1 deadline will be notified by December 31.

The Foundation will consider requests for general operating support only if the organization's operating budget is less than $1 million.
