The van Ameringen Foundation is a private grantmaking foundation located in New York City. It was established by Arnold Louis van Ameringen in 1950 and received its assets from him during his lifetime and at his death in 1966 and from his widow, Hedwig van Ameringen, during her lifetime and at her death in 1996.
The foundation supports innovative and practical programs that increase the accessibility of the poor and needy to mental-health services, offer preventive and early-intervention strategies, and advocate for systemic change with local or national impact.
The foundation generally awards one- to two-year grants ranging between $25,000 and $50,000 to organizations serving the metropolitan New York and Philadelphia regions. Currently, it does not support programs related to intellectual disability or physical disability. In addition, grants are not made for endowments, capital projects, annual fundraising drives, or in support of international activities and institutions. No grants in direct support of individuals are made by the foundation under any circumstances
