Search Our Grants Archive

The foundation allocates money to local nonprofits in two ways. One way is through responsive grantmaking, which means nonprofits apply for funding and we distribute based on greatest need. The other way is through proactive grantmaking, which allows the foundation to make targeted, long-term grants for larger initiatives. Please note that these search results do not include designated grants, donor-advised grants, or grants made by supporting organizations.
