Eleanor and Gipp Ludcke established the Ludcke Foundation in 1991 to fulfill their vision that every individual be given the opportunity to grow up in a safe and nurturing surrounding, have access to adequate health care and an opportunity to pursue an education.
The Ludcke Foundation supports organizations that provide needed resources and services to children and families, with an emphasis on emotional and physical health, education and social development.
The Foundation devotes its grants to the fields of education, medicine, and human services. The trustees have a special interest in programs that focus across two or three of the foundation’s areas of interest and in partnering with other donors with similar objectives to enable more ambitious projects.
The Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals. Only organizations invited by the trustees may apply.
