Company Description

The F. M. Kirby Foundation is a family foundation. Fred Morgan Kirby, a five-and-dime-merchant who became one of the founders of F.W. Woolworth Company, endowed the Foundation in 1931 and served as president until 1940. The foundation's grantees are largely in geographic areas of particular interest to five generations of Kirby family members and, in many cases, are organizations with which family members have been associated. Successful new applicants tend to be organizations already well known to one or more of the directors of the Foundation or other members of the family. Foundation grants are made to a wide range of nonprofit organizations in education, health and medicine, the arts and humanities, civic and public affairs, as well as religious, welfare and youth organizations.
