Grant Funding

Awarding grants is what we do, and compassion is why we do it.  Whether it’s funding arts programs that bridge the gap between kids and older adults, or helping people gain skills to attain jobs to raise families, our work helps make life better for people in the communities we serve. Simply put, we connect people with people who can help because that’s the only way real change happens.
