Purpose and Activities

Grants primarily to individuals for projects (sometimes involving a departure from one's usual vocation or a creative extension of it) with a promise of good to others. Awards are usually made on a one-year basis and are not renewed.


Incorporated in 1939 in MA - The Trust was established in 1939 by Dr. Richard C. Cabot , a pioneering and innovative Boston physician, to honor the memory of his wife, Ella Lyman Cabot, and the work of the Trust is carried on today by the Trustees of the Ella Lyman Cabot Trust. Dr. and Mrs. Cabot believed strongly in the individual's ability to make a positive difference in the world. The criteria by which the Trustees make decisions on grants are based on the lives and ideals of the Cabots, who, during their lives, contributed greatly to the fields of medicine, social work, and ethics.
