Topfer Family Foundation Grant
The Topfer Family Foundation is committed to helping people connect to the tools and resources needed to build self-sufficient and fulfilling lives.
The mission of the Topfer Family Foundation (TFF) is to fund programs and organizations that connect people to the tools and resources they need to build self-sufficient and fulfilling lives. Programs eligible for TFF funding will adhere to the guidelines listed below and address one or more of the following program areas:
Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment
Self-sufficiency for children and families begins in a safe, healthy home. TFF supports programs that provide resources, training and treatment for families and children of abuse. Grants are awarded to programs that promote positive parenting, strengthen families, and provide early intervention. Additionally, TFF funds therapeutic support services for victims of abuse to enhance their quality of life and enable them to reach their full potential.
TFF is committed to helping at-risk youth prepare for self-sufficient, fulfilling lives. Therefore, the foundation funds initiatives that help youth develop practical life skills, promote education, build self-confidence, and provide positive development and enrichment opportunities.
Job Training and Support Services
Self-sufficiency is unlikely without the skills and knowledge to earn a livable wage. Therefore, the foundation supports job training programs and support services that enable people to increase their earning potential and enhance their quality of life through sustainable and meaningful employment. Initiatives eligible for TFF funding include vocational training, remedial education and life skills training. Successful programs will address the multiple needs of the individual to ensure that employment is secured and sustained.
For parents who have faced the expensive and overwhelming task of caring for an ill child, self-sufficiency can be a distant dream. TFF supports organizations that provide access to critical healthcare for low-income children and those with chronic and terminal illnesses. Grants are awarded to programs that address the physical and emotional needs of sick children and their families through compassionate care, medical treatment and intervention services.
Aging in Place
Aging does not lead to an inevitable loss of independence. However, limited access to safe, affordable housing can be a barrier. TFF partners with local organizations that provide housing options for the elderly while ensuring access to the support services needed to maintain their health and independence. Eligible programs include those that offer home modification, home repair, food and nutrition services, and affordable housing alternatives.
Applications are accepted year round and scheduled for review based on the order in which they are received. The Board of Directors reviews applications at its quarterly meetings, generally held in March, June, September and December.

Tyson Foods welcomes sponsorship proposals from organizations that align with the company’s core values and allow the company to play a vital role by funding highly visible contributions to the community.
Tyson Foods owns and operates facilities in more than 100 communities across the U.S. Most of our communities are in rural areas where, in many cases, Tyson is the largest employer.
Most of our team members work on the front lines of our processing plants and may face challenges in accessing basic resources like housing, transportation, childcare and health care, as well as ensuring they feel a sense of connection with their community. Social challenges like these not only prevent our team members from growing and thriving—they also impact turnover and absenteeism.
As a result, our community impact efforts emphasize improving the quality of life in the communities where our team members live and work. We do this by focusing where we can uniquely add value, take advantage of our strengths, and generate the most impact from both business and social perspectives.
Specifically, our efforts:
- Address hunger insecurity by expanding access to protein.
- Work with team members to address social challenges that disrupt their lives, such as housing, transportation, childcare, team member culture/integration and health care.
- Support market access and growth for Tyson Foods and its subsidiaries.
- Improve quality of life in the communities where we operate.

The Impact Fund
The Impact Fund awards recoverable grants to legal services nonprofits, private attorneys, and small law firms who seek to advance justice in the areas of civil and human rights, environmental justice, and poverty law. Since being founded in 1992, the Impact Fund has made more than 700 recoverable grants totaling more than $8 million for impact litigation.
The Impact Fund provides grants and legal support to assist in human and civil rights cases. We have helped to change dozens of laws and win cases to improve the rights of thousands. The cases we are funding allege that:
- In Orange County, California there are currently 13 gang injunctions under effect, which disproportionately affect young men of color.
- In Chicago, Illinois, the city’s homeless shelter program is inaccessible to people with disabilities.
- In Springfield, Oregon, the city and its police department used excessive force during a Black Lives Matter protest.
- In Maine, the state fails to safely monitor the prescription and administration of powerful psychotropic medications to foster youth.
- In Missouri, a Medicaid agency fails to arrange for in-home nursing services for children with medically complex conditions.
- In Montana, voter suppression laws disadvantage young adults and give priority to gun owners.
- In Vancouver, British Columbia, the police perpetuate systemic discrimination against Indigenous people through bureaucratic measures.
- In West Virginia, incarcerated individuals do not receive adequate medical and mental health care, and jails do not comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The Impact Fund provides grants to support local litigation for environmental justice. These are often cases no one else will support. The cases we are funding allege that:
- In downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin the proposed expansion of a highway will divide the region's Black, Asian, and Latine neighborhoods and bring pollution and ill health.
- In North Dakota, the five-month closure of a highway in response to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests disproportionately affected the livelihoods and health of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe members.
- In Ontario, Canada, mercury contamination of the English-Wabigoon river system causes catastrophic environmental and health impacts for the Grassy Narrows First Nation.
- In Sacramento, California, the county government and Sacramento Area Sewer District violate the Clean Water Act by discharging raw sewage into the Delta, the Sacramento River, and the American River.
- In Fresno, California, the city’s efforts to streamline industrial development fail to protect vulnerable neighborhoods from adverse environmental and public health impacts.
- In the Eastern Coachella Valley in California, 1,900 residents of the Oasis Mobile Home Park suffer from arsenic-laced drinking water, wastewater contamination, and overcharging for utilities.
The Impact Fund provides financial and other forms of support to cases fighting for economic justice. From workers' rights to consumer protection for vulnerable populations, impact litigation is a powerful tool to hold corporations accountable. The cases we are funding allege that:
- In San Diego, California, vehicle ordinances target homeless vehicle owners even when no adequate housing alternative exists.
- In Minneapolis, Minnesota, the city and county destroy the property of homeless individuals and employ forced evictions from public spaces.
- In Miami, Florida, insurance companies discriminate against a nonprofit community development corporation renting to tenants with Section 8 rental subsidies.
McGraw Foundation, headquartered in Northbrook, Illinois, makes annual grants to not-for-profit organizations.

The mission of The Needmor Fund is to work with others to bring about social justice. We support groups of people who come together to organize their community, build power, and challenge the social, economic, or political conditions that bar their access to participation in a democratic society.”
Our work is informed by a vision of democracy and justice:
We strive to engage those whose participation in our democratic society has been systemically denied, because we believe our nation will operate most equitably when all of its people are actively involved in crafting the vision, values and policies that affect their lives. This includes, but is not limited to, those who have traditionally been marginalized – i.e., low- and moderate-income communities, people of color, the disabled, immigrants and members of the LGBTQ community.
We seek a just society in which all persons are treated with dignity and assured their fundamental rights, including equal access to the basic necessities of life: food, shelter, safety, health care, education, livable wages, and a clean environment.
We work to build a nation in which all citizens are free to exercise their rights regardless of race, ethnic origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, economic status, or religious persuasion.
We believe in the power of community and its ability to collectively determine the best strategies for improving the lives of its members.
Our work together is guided by the following beliefs:
- Every individual has inherent worth and has the right to have his or her voice heard.
- Community organizing is one of the most effective means to engage and lift the voices of those whose participation in our democratic society has been systematically denied.
- Equality, equity, and inclusion of the diverse voices of our society are central to responsible deliberation and decision-making, within both our institutions and society-at-large.
Needmor’s Core Grants Program provides general operating support to groups engaged in the work of community organizing. Grantees funded through this program are eligible to receive funding for up to three years, after which an organization may not apply for at least two years.
The Fund’s Core Grants Program will focus on supporting community organizing in the Midwest – specifically an eight state region that includes Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
While Needmor embraces the opportunity to fund emerging organizations, our commitment remains to funding strong, effective community organizing. We thus seek to support groups that:
- Organize primarily low- and moderate-income people, as evidenced by demographic/ statistical data indicating social and economic distress.
- Have a multi-issue agenda that reflects an intersectional approach to addressing issues associated with race, economic justice and equality.
- Demonstrate a commitment to long-term base building and effectively link issue work to building organizational power.
- Are democratically run and consist of a dues-paying membership base, with deep member engagement and a process for both developing and regenerating a strong cadre of leaders over time.
- Have developed a power analysis and a clearly defined plan for challenging/altering the dynamics of power within their communities.
- Engage in direct action and have demonstrated the ability to win concrete victories of increasingly larger scale.
- Have a vision to continually build and aggregate power, enabling them to take on bigger policy issues and expand its base of allies to increase its impact over time.
- Are well managed, engage in strategic planning, and have a sound budget and diversified fundraising plan.
In addition to meeting the above basic criteria, Needmor is interested in funding groups that:
- Organize across lines of race, class, and gender; and, promote the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
- Are linked to and leverage the power of faith, labor, and community into powerful organizations.
- Demonstrate a willingness to work collaboratively for the purpose of building collective power to achieve systematic change at the regional, state, and national level.
- Are connected to larger organizing networks that are working to implement new, broad, and creative public policies that address systemic issues facing low- and moderate-income communities.
- Integrate voter engagement strategies and the expansion of democracy into the building of powerful community organizations.
- Demonstrate the ability to develop an agenda that frames issues of relevance to both urban and rural constituencies.
- Recognize and address the impact of global corporatization as it relates to issues of economic and environmental justice.
- Have potential for attracting the interest and support of other funders.
