Centene Charitable Foundation
Centene Charitable Foundation
Successful corporate citizenship happens when companies invest in the local organizations that know their communities best. The Centene Foundation works with our local partners on initiatives that focus on inclusion, the whole person and community development.
Centene’s purpose is transforming the health of the community, one person at a time. The Centene Foundation is an essential part of how we pursue this purpose. We achieve measurable impact for the communities we serve through partnerships and philanthropy efforts that invest in initiatives with holistic approaches to dismantling barriers to health.
Areas of Focus
Reflecting Centene’s commitment to the needs of those who rely on government-sponsored health care and to addressing social determinants of health and health equity, preference will be given to initiatives in three distinct areas of focus.
- Healthcare Access
- Social Services
Costco Wholesale’s primary charitable efforts specifically focus on programs supporting children, education, and health and human services in the communities where we do business. Throughout the year we receive a large number of requests from nonprofit organizations striving to make a positive impact, and we are thankful to be able to provide support to a variety of organizations and causes. While we would like to respond favorably to all requests, understandably, the needs are far greater than our allocated resources and we are unable to accommodate them all.
Warehouse donations are handled at the warehouse level - please consult your local warehouse for up-to-date information regarding their donations contacts and review process.
If the request is under consideration, you may be contacted by staff for any additional information needed. Applications are reviewed within 4-6 weeks, and decisions are made based on several factors, including: type of program; identified community need not otherwise available; indication that evidenced based data will establish measurable results of intended outcomes; community collaboration; broad base of financial support; project budget and operating expenses.
Carnegie Corporation of New York
Carnegie Corporation of New York’s Democracy program supports civic integration of immigrants. The program also supports the protection of voting rights and promotes voter participation of all citizens. We work to foster a fair, diverse, and vibrant democracy that welcomes and offers opportunities to all.
The Democracy program strives to build alliances that bring together a left-to-right spectrum of viewpoints on civics, citizenship, and immigration, while reflecting America’s long tradition of acceptance and respect for newcomers of all nationalities, cultures, and religions.
Pluralism, the belief in one nation made up of many peoples, has been essential to U.S. democracy from the beginning. The Democracy program’s support for alliance building is based on this belief. Our goal is to bring a wide range of pro-immigrant voices into the immigration debate from across the political spectrum during a time of deep polarization, when it is even more crucial to recommend bipartisan solutions to immigration reform, election administration, and voting rights. For example, the Corporation’s support has fostered successful teamwork among members of the business, faith, law enforcement, government, and other key communities to advocate for the value of immigrants and immigration.
We support national nonprofit groups that educate, coordinate, and strengthen a field made up of locally based organizations dealing with challenges to democracy, immigration, voting, and related issues. These challenges result from the dearth of effective federal policies needed to promote and protect the civil and human rights of all people in the United States.
Threats to democracy and civic engagement exist in all corners of the country. State and local governments wield tremendous power in the United States, especially in areas not addressed by the federal government. For example, a patchwork of state and local laws attempts to deal with an immigration system that is in crisis. To establish a strong field that can take on numerous challenges to our democracy, the Corporation funds national organizations such as NEO Philanthropy, which houses funder collaboratives like the Four Freedoms Fund. Another grantee, the State Infrastructure Fund, working across a majority of states, has helped build a diverse network of smaller associations that advocate for policy improvements at the local, state, and federal levels.
The Corporation funds original research on important issues, including voting rights, voter participation, immigration, citizenship, and the census, in order to improve federal and state policies regarding immigrant integration and civic engagement.
A strong U.S. democracy depends on government policies developed on the basis of robust nonpartisan research. Corporation-funded research has, for example, shown that mass deportation would cost $285 billion to arrest, detain, and deport undocumented immigrants in the United States. By contrast, reforming the entire U.S. immigration system would add $1.5 trillion to the economy over 10 years. Another study funded by the Corporation analyzed the impact of nonpartisan voter engagement to groups that tend to have low turnout on Election Day. This research showed an overall 12.5 percent increase in voting rates due to this direct, meaningful outreach, resulting in a 19.1 percent increase in turnout for Hispanic voters, a 13.1 percent increase for African Americans, and a 4.2 percent increase for Asian Americans.
The Democracy program’s support for strategic communications is designed to promote intelligent, unbiased, nonpartisan news coverage to deepen public understanding of civic issues like voting rights, voter engagement, immigration, and the census.
A vibrant democracy must have what Thomas Jefferson called the “fourth branch” of government: an independent press capable of keeping citizens informed. Strategic communications, along with the other pillars of our program — alliance building, field building, and policy development — ensures that our message is shared in a thoughtful way, nationally and regionally, reaching communities across the country to build support and momentum for immigration policy changes and the protection of voting rights.
Nonpartisan Voter Engagement and Voting Rights
Engaged citizens — those who care about and work to preserve our democracy — help ensure that government policies reflect the concerns of constituents. A democracy, by definition, gives eligible citizens the right to vote for their elected representatives.
Carnegie Corporation of New York’s commitment to citizenship and voting rights began with our founder Andrew Carnegie, who stated, “Along with the freedom to pursue wealth and happiness, the greatest gift the American Republic has to bestow is citizenship.” Carnegie also believed that, in return for this gift, citizens have duties. For more than a century, the Corporation has consistently emphasized both the rights and the responsibilities of citizenship. The Democracy program provides strategic, ongoing support to organizations that promote nonpartisan voter engagement, especially among groups with traditionally low levels of voting or with less access to information about government. Compared to other democracies, voter participation in the U.S. is comparatively low, even in recent years when voter turnout has been higher than usual. For example, 55.7% turnout in 2016 put the U.S. in 26th place among the 32 developed countries. With barriers to voting on the rise (e.g., complex voter registration requirements and cutbacks in early voting), large-scale efforts to protect voting rights and encourage voter engagement at the federal and state levels are of critical importance.
William Randolph Hearst Foundation
Hearst Foundations' Mission
The Hearst Foundations identify and fund outstanding nonprofits to ensure that people of all backgrounds in the United States have the opportunity to build healthy, productive and inspiring lives.
Hearst Foundations' Goals
The Foundations seek to achieve their mission by funding approaches that result in:
- Improved health and quality of life
- Access to high quality educational options to promote increased academic achievement
- Arts and sciences serving as a cornerstone of society
- Sustainable employment and productive career paths for adults
- Stabilizing and supporting families
The Hearst Foundations support well-established nonprofit organizations that address significant issues within their major areas of interests – culture, education, health and social service – and that primarily serve large demographic and/or geographic constituencies. In each area of funding, the Foundations seek to identify those organizations achieving truly differentiated results relative to other organizations making similar efforts for similar populations. The Foundations also look for evidence of sustainability beyond their support.
The Hearst Foundations fund cultural institutions that offer meaningful programs in the arts and sciences, prioritizing those which enable engagement by young people and create a lasting and measurable impact. The Foundations also fund select programs nurturing and developing artistic talent.
Types of Support: Program, capital and, on a limited basis, general and endowment support
The Hearst Foundations fund educational institutions demonstrating uncommon success in preparing students to thrive in a global society. The Foundations’ focus is largely on higher education, but they also fund innovative models of early childhood and K-12 education, as well as professional development.
Types of Support: Program, scholarship, capital and, on a limited basis, general and endowment support
The Hearst Foundations assist leading regional hospitals, medical centers and specialized medical institutions providing access to high-quality healthcare for low-income populations. In response to the shortage of healthcare professionals necessary to meet the country’s evolving needs, the Foundations also fund programs designed to enhance skills and increase the number of practitioners and educators across roles in healthcare. Because the Foundations seek to use their funds to create a broad and enduring impact on the nation’s health, support for medical research and the development of young investigators is also considered.
Types of Support: Program, capital and, on a limited basis, endowment support
The Hearst Foundations fund direct-service organizations that tackle the roots of chronic poverty by applying effective solutions to the most challenging social and economic problems. The Foundations prioritize supporting programs that have proven successful in facilitating economic independence and in strengthening families. Preference is also given to programs with the potential to scale productive practices in order to reach more people in need.
Types of Support: Program, capital and general support

The Lawrence Foundation
The Lawrence Foundation is a private family foundation focused on making grants to support environmental, human services and other causes.
The Lawrence Foundation was established in mid-2000. We make both program and operating grants and do not have any geographical restrictions on our grants. Nonprofit organizations that qualify for public charity status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or other similar organizations are eligible for grants from The Lawrence Foundation.
Grant Amount and Types
Grants typically range between $5,000 - $10,000. In some limited cases we may make larger grants, but that is typically after we have gotten to know your organization over a period of time. We also generally don’t make multi-year grants, although we may fund the same organization on a year by year basis over a period of years.
General operating or program/project grant requests within our areas of interests are accepted. In general, regardless of whether a grant request is for general operating or program/project expenses, all of our grants will be issued as unrestricted grants.

Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund
In 2014, the Hispanic Federation (HF), Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF), New York Urban League (NYUL), and Asian American Federation (AAF) formed an alliance to provide capacity-building support to Black, Latino, and Asian-led community-based organizations (CBOs) throughout New York City’s five boroughs. These four organizations, along with the Black Agency Executives, developed this initiative to generate new levels of support for the city’s organizations. As a result, the New York City Council allocated $2.5 million to establish the Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF). This initiative has supported 535 capacity-building projects for nonprofit organizations to date. Thanks to continued support from the New York City Council, we are pleased to announce the release of the Request for Applications (RFA) for an eighth round of awards.
The first New York City Council fund of its kind, CCNSF aims to build the capacity of New York City nonprofits in recognition of the fact that organizations led by people of the community are best equipped to meet the needs of the community. CCNSF is also intended to promote learning among CBO leaders.
Applications will be reviewed, and awards will be determined by the partner agencies in three separate funding streams, whose allocations were determined by U.S. Census data. An organization may apply to only ONE partner agency, even if it serves more than one ethnic group.
Awarded organizations will be required to participate in a minimum of three technical assistance seminars on the subject of organizational development and may be visited by CCNSF staff and/or Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) staff for project monitoring, to showcase progress, and for delivery of additional technical assistance.
The purpose of the CCNSF capacity-building program is to help organizations identify and address their most pressing organizational needs. Organizations can apply for funding in one of seven areas. Organizations MAY NOT apply for a project under an area that they previously were funded for through CCNSF:
- Management information systems design and development - This includes securing and/or designing software and building related staff skills necessary for managing work more effectively (e.g., tracking client demographic data, service utilization, and progress toward outcomes).
- Financial management and planning - This includes assessment, planning, and development of financial systems, as well as staff skill-building to improve reporting systems and enable organizations to identify the most cost-effective services.
- Evaluation and outcomes system development - This includes efforts to implement systems to keep information related to client needs, referral sources, and services provided; implement systems to measure and/or service recipient satisfaction and/or service recipient outcomes; develop programmatic success measures; and develop evaluation capacity
- Leadership development - This includes leadership succession planning; creation and implementation of volunteer management/recruitment plan; management/leadership training for staff; training for board of directors; and creation of board policies.
- New program planning and development - This includes conducting a needs assessment of community needs and assets, planning of new programs through research on effective practices, and staff development in support of the new initiatives
- Strategy and organizational development - This includes efforts to create a staff performance review process; a strategic or operational/annual plan; a communications or marketing plan; and a fundraising or donor development plan.
- Collaboration and strategic alliances - This includes efforts to establish partnership agreements, create action plans to collaborate with other agencies, and develop a plan for organizational mergers.
Under this RFA, CCNSF will make awards of up to $35,000 for organizations with organizational budgets between $150,000 to $500,000 and awards of up to $45,000 for organizations with budgets that are $500,001 to $2 million. Community-based organizations with budgets over $2 million are NOT eligible to apply. Funding during one year of the program will not guarantee funding in subsequent years. However, successful implementation of a CCNSF grant may contribute to favorable consideration for renewed funding. In the event that additional funding becomes available, organizations will have to re-apply with a new project and proposal.
