Marcia Lipetz

Alphawood Foundation honors the memory of Marcia Lipetz, our first executive director and a moving force in the creation of our organization.  Marcia was a giant in our city and will remain forever in our hearts as we continue the work she started.  We remember her with profound thanks.


Alphawood Foundation is a Chicago-based, grant-making private foundation working for an equitable, just, and humane society. Each year we award grants to organizations, primarily in the areas of advocacy, architecture and preservation, the arts and arts education, promotion and protection of the rights of LGBT citizens and people living with HIV/AIDS, and other human and civil rights.

Our funding is by invitation only.  We do not accept uninvited applications for funding.  We regret that we cannot acknowledge or return unsolicited materials that we receive.
