Mission Statement

To assist and support those charities which work in large part to improve the lives of underprivileged youths in the Chicago area by promoting their educational and social development.

The New Frontiers Foundation was established in 1995 to encourage and preserve the human spirit in the underserved children of the Chicago metropolitan area. The Foundation uses its funds to promote the educational development of youth from underresourced neighborhoods in Chicago, thereby opening new doors and providing opportunity and hope when otherwise there might be none.

If you are interested in applying for a grant, please send whatever literature you deem relevant, along with your financials and your 501c-3 letter to:

New Frontiers Foundation
400 Skokie Blvd., Suite 500
Northbrook, IL 60062
