The Morgan Stanley Foundation has been supporting the communities in which they live and work for more than 50 years. The Foundation believes a healthy start and a solid education are the fundamentals upon which future success is built. In service of this mission, Morgan Stanley and its employees generously donate intellectual capital, leadership and “sweat equity” to leverage the Foundation’s financial support, maximize our impact on communities and deepen our partnerships with grantees.
The Foundation funds its priority areas of Environment, Social Finance and Community Development.
Morgan Stanley International Foundation takes a proactive approach to grant making and therefore does not accept unsolicited proposals. If you think your organisation is a match for the criteria set out below, then you may apply by sending an email. You will then be sent the guidelines and if your organisation is successful in the first stage of application, you will be invited to complete a full proposal.
Grant applications are considered quarterly and the Trustees are senior representatives from across the Firm’s divisions.
MSI Foundation does not make contributions to organisations that fall within the following criteria:
- Organisations which are not registered as a non profit organisation with the appropriate regulatory agencies in their country (unless a state funded school).
- National or International charities which do not operate in the regions we are located.
- Grants will not be made to either political or religious organisations, “pressure groups” or individuals outside the Firm who are seeking sponsorship either for themselves (e.g. to help pay for education) or for onward transmission to a charitable organisation.
- Programmes that do not include opportunities for employee volunteer engagement
