Community Change Grants

We understand that many issues can be best addressed when communities work together, pooling resources and expertise, and developing collaborative and creative solutions. By funding cross-organizational initiatives, we can help organizations broaden their outlook and their reach.

Community Change grants generally support collaborative work intended to effect community-wide and/or systems-level change (e.g., efforts to eliminate structural barriers preventing the Foundation’s populations of interest from accessing services). The Foundation accepts requests for funding from the Community Change portfolio three times per year.
