Series 3, Grants, 1940-1961 [bulk 1952-1959], is divided into three subseries: Grants Approved, Grant Awards, and Grants Rejected. Each subseries is arranged alphabetically by organization. From the outset the Fund realized that in order to advance its civil rights and civil liberties agenda, it needed to financially aid existing organizations already working within those areas. The Fund sought to assist organizations who were educating people about their civil rights and the precarious state of those rights at that time. The Fund believed these organizations were the most qualified to obtain the facts and their interpretation of the facts would merit the attention of the public.


No arrangement action taken or arrangement information not recorded at the time of processing.
