Series I Foundations Boxes 1-10

The materials in this series consist of information on donations, grants, and foundations, along with correspondence with funding agencies. The arrangement is in alphabetical order by subject. Most of the information dates from about 1973-1976.

Most of the information on foundations reflects correspondence that executive secretary, Loren Kramer, and other administrators sent to the foundations in order to receive aid. However, often information on particular foundations is included as well. The largest amount of information on any foundation is the Lilly Endowment. This foundation supported SIA for a number of years through a series of grants.

Some of this material may be in a delicate condition due to damage from water.
