Who We Fund

happy children

We fund 501(c)3 non-profit organizations, public schools and school districts located in Northern and Central California that are focused on Families and Communities, Education and Youth Development.


We believe that you are an expert in your community. You know what programs, projects and initiatives will improve outcomes for your youth and families, and you know how best to maximize and activate your community’s distinctive assets. If your approach to community change includes the following, we want to hear from you:

  • Bringing together key community stakeholders who collectively have the skills needed to be successful.
  • Initiating and fostering productive working relationships.
  • Activating the strong sense of place and community that exists among residents.
  • Readiness and capacity to execute a work plan.
  • Commitment to best practices.
  • Openness to sharing the lessons learned with peers and other leaders in your field.
