John Templeton Foundation Approves $85 Million in New Programs

Thursday, June 20, 2019

In June 2019, the Board of Trustees of the John Templeton Foundation approved 57 funding requests with an approximate total value of $85 million, marking its most recent wave of philanthropic activity.

“We’re delighted to move forward with approving these requests, which represent a range of our philanthropic interests as well as our strategic priorities over the next five years,” said Heather Templeton Dill, President of the John Templeton Foundation.

“We look forward to seeing these projects develop, and hope that they will continue to add to the remarkable results achieved by recent grantees. From studying the nature of ‘unbelief’ to exploring the health impact of environmental factors on human epigenetics and revealing the first-ever image of a black hole, our grantees are pushing the boundaries of knowledge across a variety of fields. And their efforts are having real human impact, helping children to develop character virtues, bringing science education to seminariesmadrasas, and synagogues, and expanding platforms for freedom and human rights around the globe.”
