The New World Foundation, a 501c3 public charity based in New York City, was established in 1954 through the will of Anita McCormick Blaine and "grew to maturity during the civil rights era." Through its grants, the Foundation supports "organizations working to strengthen and expand civil rights and the active participation of citizens in American democracy ... [and] to support the building of social movements by supporting organizing, which builds a sustainable mass base of activists in viable organizations." [1]
