The Nora Roberts Foundation makes grants in the areas of literacy, children’s programs, arts, and humanitarian efforts. Literacy Grants are intended to empower people through literacy. Recent grants were used to fund literacy groups, theatre and arts education, new library projects, and humane education programs. While proposals are accepted from organizations located throughout the United States, there is a geographic preference for organizations located in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and West Virginia. Applications should be submitted online.
