Consolidated Communications Foundation
NOTE: Funding requests are accepted year round. The Foundation Board of Directors meets monthly to consider grant requests.
At Consolidated Communications, we live and work in the communities we serve and we are committed to being a community partner. The Consolidated Communications Foundation was founded in 1992 in our California market and later expanded to our Kansas market.
To date, the California and Kansas chapters of the Foundation have given over $5 million to communities through local non-profits and organizations who are serving those in need and creating more vibrant communities in which to live and work.
Our Foundation is funded through the generosity of our current and retired employees, who voluntarily make payroll contributions that are matched by the company.
Strong community involvement has long been a commitment of Consolidated Communications. Through the support of employees and management, we are able to continue our legacy of giving back to the communities where our employees and customers live, work and play.
All administrative costs of our Foundation are absorbed by Consolidated Communications, so 100 percent of all funds donated by employees and the company go directly to the organizations in need.
The mission of the Consolidated Communications Foundation is to give back to the communities we serve by supporting non-profit organizations that serve those in need and create more vibrant communities in which to live and work.
The Consolidated Communications Foundation is unique in that the employees who donate funds help direct our giving for the year. Employees may choose to direct their funds to a specific agency, a giving category or the Foundation’s General Fund. General fund monies are distributed by the board of directors within each region. The Board is comprised of employees representing various functions and levels of the organization. Our giving categories include:

Historically, REACH has focused its community investments in areas including primary medical care, mental health, oral health, and health policy and advocacy. Our current funding priorities are outlined within a community investment framework, which describes the foundation’s three outcomes areas:

Each outcome area aligns with the foundation’s commitment to achieving equitable health outcomes throughout our six-county service area. These outcome areas, and the strategies within each, guide our work, partnerships and where we invest.

William G. McGowan Charitable Fund
NOTE: No Letter of Inquiry (LOI) is required if you have received funding within the past three years and still meet our general rules of eligibility. (If funding from the McGowan Fund was received more than three years ago, you must go through the LOI process.)
What We Do
The McGowan Fund is the living legacy of William G. McGowan, an entrepreneur and change-maker. We give priority to programs that have demonstrated success, have measurable outcomes and plans for sustainability, and aim to end cycles of poverty and suffering.
Our active, strategic grant-making focuses on three areas: Education, with an emphasis on improving academic achievement, high school graduation rates, and college success; Human Services, with an emphasis on homelessness; and Healthcare & Medical Research, with an eye to prevention of cardiac disease and reversal of metabolic syndrome through intensive lifestyle management. We also support access to healthcare.
In our grant making, we focus on three areas
Education Initiatives- with an emphasis on improving academic achievement, high school graduation rates, and college success
Education makes all the difference. It is the most powerful point of departure for children struggling with poverty, community disruption, family stress, or failure. It’s the prerequisite for most long-lived careers that provide sustainable wages.
Through our grant-making in five geographic regions, the McGowan Fund focuses on innovative programs that show measurable improvement in addressing achievement gaps, improving teaching and learning, and reducing disparities among students.
Areas of support in this initiative include:
- Out-of-school Programs
- Charter, faith-based, and alternative schools
- Scholarships for high achieving students in private education.
Human Services Initiatives- with an emphasis on homelessness
The cycles of poverty and homelessness can seem intractable. Homelessness attenuates access to food, health, and work; this limited availability in turn hinders access to long-term housing. Recognizing the complexity and dependencies of the problem, the Fund focuses on projects that address basic human needs and stabilize individuals and families.
Areas of support in this initiative include:
- Stabilized Housing
- Food/Clothing Security
- Adult Education (e.g. ESL, Financial Literacy, GED Attainment)
- Homelessness Remediation/Prevention
Healthcare Initiatives- with an eye to providing access to families living without readily available care.
Lack of healthcare can be a barrier to work, education, and a family’s mobility out of poverty. We fund programs that seek to remove this barrier by providing quality care to those who may not have other care options.
Areas of support in this initiative include:
- Primary Care
- Mental Health Services

Ms. Foundation For Women
Ms. Foundation for Women
The mission of the Ms. Foundation for Women is to build women’s collective power in the U.S. to advance equity and justice for all. We achieve our mission by investing in, and strengthening, the capacity of women-led movements to advance meaningful social, cultural and economic change in the lives of women. Ms. has six grantmaking initiatives, one of which is the Birth Justice Initiative.
Birth Justice Initiative
Our Birth Justice Initiative aims to:
- advance equitable birth outcomes and experiences;
- strengthen the capacity, organizational infrastructure, and financial stability of grassroots Black, Indigenous and women of color-led birth justice organizations; and
- expand the frame of birth justice to support intersectional movements and strategies that recognize the full spectrum of experiences and identities in birthing, parenting, and family building.
We believe that Black, Indigenous, and women of color (including trans women and non-binary people) are key experts and should be decision-makers in shaping policy and culture change around birth justice. By investing directly into organizations led by and for women and girls of color, we are ensuring that the movement to address racial based disparities in healthcare, including birth outcomes and experiences, is led by those who are impacted most. Strengthening the collective power of communities of color is critical to addressing the root causes of these disparities and advancing birth justice for all.
The U.S. has one of the highest maternal mortality rates of all developed nations and Black women die at three to four times the rate of white women in birth – one of the widest racial disparities in women’s health. Systemic racism, implicit bias, and anti-Blackness all contribute to the significant disparities in birth outcomes among Black, Indigenous and birthing people of color. Moreover, the spectrum of intersectional issues that comprise birth justice and the ability to have children and parent with dignity, are not only limited to the birth process.
As such, the Ms. Foundation’s Birth Justice Initiative invests in organizations who represent the full spectrum of birth experiences including–but not limited to–preconception health, mental health and wellness, infertility, abortion access and abortion care, comprehensive sex and sexuality education, non-racist culturally affirming and gender expansive healthcare, access to birth workers of color, access to lactation support and services, postpartum health and wellness, grief and loss care and support, and sexual assault prevention and survivor support services. Organizations supported collectively utilize a range of movement building strategies to advance birth justice—such as narrative change, policy and systems change, advocacy, leadership development, direct service among others. And finally, they work at the intersection of birth justice and other movements, such as disability justice, youth justice, LGBTQIA+ justice, environmental justice, economic justice, and criminal legal reform.
During this cycle, Ms. will provide one-time grants ranging from $50,000 to $100,000 to selected organizations not currently receiving funding from Ms.’ Birth Justice Initiative. The grant period will comprise two years.
