Due to the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic is an ongoing issue that affects physical attendance and has caused many organizations to switch to virtual programming, we ask that you take this into consideration when applying for a project this year so that you will not need to request a re-allocation of a potential grant award.  The judges of this program will be asked to make sure organizations have kept this in mind when applying this year.


The Colburn-Keenan Foundation is committed to providing assistance and support to community, local, and national organizations that offer programs and services to individuals and families with chronic illnesses in the United States, with priority on those within bleeding disorders community.


The Marcy Shulman Memorial Organization Grant Program is named in honor of one of the founding members of the Colburn-Keenan Foundation’s Board of Directors, Marcy Shulman. Marcy was a long-time friend, co-worker, and collaborator of the Foundation’s founders, Donald Colburn and Kathy Ann Keenan. Marcy helped bring to fruition Don’s and Kathy’s final project, the Colburn-Keenan Foundation, following their passing from cancer in 2006. Marcy worked tirelessly developing the support programs and fine-tuning the mission of the Foundation, even as she battled cancer which would finally claim her in December of 2010.
