Series II: Special Projects, 1982-2003

While the vast majority of the grants given out by the Boehm Foundation from 1982-2003 were small grants that were up for renewal on an annual basis, there were a few groups that the Foundation funded at a far higher monetary level and in multi-year terms. The special consideration given by the Boehm Foundation to the organizations in this series can in most cases be explained by the personal relationship Robert Boehm shared with these organizations. For example, he was the long-time chairperson of the board for the Center for Constitutional Rights and served for a time as the treasurer of the Lawyers' Committee on Nuclear Policy. Two of the long-term projects appearing in this series were scholarship funds established in the name of Boehm's daughter, Nancy Boehm-Coster, after her death in 1991.

Material in this series is organized alphabetically according to the names of the programs or organizations funded by the Boehm Foundation.
