Since 2004, the Judith and Jean Pape Adams Charitable Foundation has funded two main areas: organizations and agencies that work to enrich the lives of those in the Tulsa, Oklahoma region; and national organizations that conduct Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research aimed at finding a cure for the disease. After careful deliberation, the Trustees of the Foundation have recently decided to spend down the Foundation’s assets and are no longer accepting unsolicited grant requests. Rather, the Foundation will begin to make Foundation-initiated grants to select institutions in 2018. Candidate organizations will be identified through an internal process and will be asked to submit proposals for final grants.
