Donor Advised Funds


National Funds. The Foundation maintains national funds, such as the J. Luce Foundation Sri Lanka Fund, that match its areas of interest.  Countries of interest to the foundation by continent, with links to relevant article in the Foundation’s Stewardship Report on Connecting Goodness, include Cuba, Haiti, Indonesia, and India.


Segregated Funds. J. Luce Foundation Donor Advised Funds are kept in stand-alone bank accounts administered by the accounting firm N. Cheng & Co. that requires tax-exempt certification on all charities the funds designate for distribution. Annual audits are performed by William Tam & Co.


The Bauer Fund. The focus of The Bauer Fund is to provide microgrants, scholarships, stipends, or research monies to assist young adults with mental health issues or developmental delays. The program will also provide impetus for promoting kindness around the world by assisting people with endeavors to make the world a better place. Award recipients will be announced on Grant Day (September 5th each year). We hereby designate “Grant” Day to stand for “Genuine Respectful Actions Never Terminate.” This day around the world will be recognized with Random Acts of Kindness (RAK’s).


Due to a commitment to low overhead, The James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation cannot accept unsolicited proposals for grants but welcomes press-releases and content for possible 'spotlighting.'
