Focus Grants are awarded to organizations that clearly demonstrate how they are disrupting intergenerational poverty. Our awards vary in size, with a standard maximum award of $25,000. Currently, we provide two Focus Grant cycles annually on the following timeline:
Cycle 1 opens February 15 | Cycle 1 closes March 31*
Cycle 2 opens July 15 | Cycle 2 closes August 31*
*If on a weekend, the deadline will move to the Friday prior at midnight.
Visit our Grantmaking Framework page to see if your organization’s efforts align with our funding strategy. In addition, we use a Community Impact Lens to assess all proposals. The priorities that inform this lens are listed below, as well as answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.
