Powerful ways to meet community needs.

We serve as a connector, partner, collaborator and resource to fuel the power of community for the greater good. Our grantmaking process is highly targeted and guided by our strategic plan. We typically release a few grant opportunities each year that vary in strategy, size and scope. Nonprofits working in our focus areas are invited to explore our grant opportunities below.

Don’t see a grant opportunity that fits?

If your organization works within our focus areas but no grant opportunity aligns with your services at this time, we still want to be part of your network. In addition to our financial resources, we value our role as a connector, partner and collaborator. We welcome you to contact the Vice President of Community Impact, Noah Atencio.

Not working within our grantmaking focus areas?
