Grant history

Mission

David Sacks was a physician and a true renaissance man. He was an accomplished musician, sculptor and active amateur athlete. He passed away in 1998.

After grants are made to specific named benefactors, additional distributions will be made exclusively to 501(c)(3) charities for the performing arts, the fine arts and educational purposes, with the balance to be distributed for general charitable purposes; including religious, scientific, literary or educational purposes or for the prevention of cruelty to children or animals. In addition, grants may be awarded to support sport competitions. Only amateur sports organizations as defined in section 501(j) of the Internal Revenue Code may request support for equipment or facilities.

Guidelines

Eligibility to re-apply for a grant award, from the Sacks Foundation requires the organization to skip 1 grant cycle (1 year) before submitting a subsequent application. For example, an organization that received a grant award in June of 2017 is not eligible to re-apply until February of 2019.

Grants typically range between $3,000 and $10,000.
