FUNDING FOR REAL CHANGE

This funding empowers them to launch new programs, build on the success of current efforts, and expand innovative solutions to create an even greater impact. We select recipients and determine funding amounts carefully. Our goal is to maximize the impact of every donor’s dollar. We understand that in the right hands, any grant amount has the potential to make a great impact.
