Announcing the next phase of The New England Food System Resilience Fund. Learn More

The John Merck Fund began its philanthropy in developmental disabilities, and later expanded to work on clean energy, health and environment, and regional food systems, recognizing these program areas are essential to benefiting human and ecological health in New England and beyond. In conjunction with our spendout strategy, we have also revamped our four grant programs to achieve the maximum impact in these complementary issue areas by 2022.
