Grant Process

We are an small organization; we simply don’t have the resources to promptly and thoughtfully respond to many unsolicited applications;  we want to discourage nonprofits from wasting their precious resources in preparing and sending materials that do not meet our funding criteria.

However, we are open to new or innovative opportunities; organizations may use the very short form below to contact us and we will respond as promptly as possible with an expression of our interest.  We will either:  invite a formal submission, request more information, or indicate the application does not meet our criteria.

The Foundation will not make the following types of grants:

  • Grants to individuals for any purpose
  • Grants for political purposes
  • Grants for lobbying activities

Criteria:  In general, our new grants focus on the San Francisco Bay Area.  If your organization is not serving this geographic area, please indicate why our foundation would be an appropriate partner.

Please review our website to ascertain if your organization matches our funding priorities (education, medicine, social service and faith-based). If you believe your organization meets our criteria, you may submit an introduction using this form.

Comments or questions are welcome.
