The Spelman Fund of New York was incorporated on December 27, 1928, with a grant of $10 million from the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial which was being merged with the Rockefeller Foundation. The Spelman Fund was for "charitable, scientific and educational purposes, including the advancement and diffusion of knowledge concerning child life, the improvment of inter-racial relations, and cooperation with public agencies." Although the Fund completed the administration of grants previously made by the LSRM, the main program of the Fund was in public administration and intergovernmental relations. Programs were designed to improve technical knowledge, promote exchange of knowledge and experiance, and discover improved methods of organization. The Fund was dissolved in 1949.
