Community Impact Fund - The Hope Foundation

The Community Impact Fund of The Hope Foundation provides financial resources for the community in areas of desired impact for the company. All grant applications are reviewed by the management team from Sheraton Real Estate Management & Sheraton Services.

Fund Focuses 

  • Second Chance Fund 
  • Human Dignity Initiatives
  • College Student Cause Fund
  • Families in Need Fund

Guidelines For Each Focus

In all that we support we promote relationships with our grantees, all of whom represent the cause of hope. In other words, we want to be more than a check writer, and more like a partner. We want all that we fund to be part of a larger work of restoring hope, a future, and human dignity. Your application is an opportunity for you to show us how you are in the hope business too.

Second Chance Fund 

The Second Chance Fund is focused on funding individuals or organizations committed to working with those who has experienced a setback due to physical hardship, emotional breakdown, spiritual brokenness, or any form of addiction, crime, or poor choices.

Human Dignity Initiatives 

The Human Dignity Initiatives serve organizations focusing their attention on those who are seeking restored dignity. Children being trafficked, abused men and women in the context of domestic violence are all examples of those who need assistance to restore dignity and to rebuild lives of meaning and hope.

College Student Cause Fund 

Hundreds of enrolled college students live in our residences throughout Chico. The College Students Cause Fund is a way for us to tap into the passions and energy of these students and invite them to partner with us. The fund is intentionally open ended so that college students who are committed to a cause or interested in making a positive influence by supporting a cause can be encouraged and supported in their endeavors. We are particularly interested in projects that are team efforts that work with nonprofit agencies, the University, schools, or other local causes that support the guidelines listed above.

Families in Need Fund 

Here at Sheraton we are about family. We recognize that others may have an employer, and extended family, a community, or other resources to help them through difficult times. Organizations serving families in need may also apply.
