We invest in Northern and Central California communities that are committed to achieving lasting, positive change for children and families living in poverty. Our work is guided by the following beliefs:
- We believe that lasting community change is possible.
- We believe in taking a holistic approach to addressing the unique needs and realities of a community.
- We respect the commitment and expertise of local organizations.
- We believe that authentic change happens when community stakeholders work interdependently.
Since 1956, we have granted nearly $300 million to more than 2,000 non-profit organizations and public schools. Visit our grants database to learn about the work we have funded.
