The Foundation is a private charitable foundation under Sec 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Its main purpose is to give grants to libraries and not-for-profit institutions that collect rare books and manuscripts and are domiciled in the United States and to U.S. affiliates of foreign institutions that constitute "Charitable Organizations" under the Internal Revenue Code.
The foundation's Board of Directors will accept requests for grants from institutional libraries to help fund major acquisitions of manuscripts, printed books and bookbindings.
Applications for grants to make specific acquisitions can be made by correspondence or e-mail, and urgent requests may even be made by telephone. They should be accompanied by as much relevant documentation as possible on the desired acquisition, as well as precise information on provenance and price. Because of the nature of the rare book market and the auction process, the officers of the Foundation realize that effective decisions often need to be made promptly. Under any circumstances, their decisions will be final.
