Core Grant Program

What We Fund

Funding through the Genuardi Family Foundation Core Grant Program supports organizations that provide direct services in one or more of the following issue areas:

  • Food access and security
  • Homelessness prevention and housing
  • Job training and placement

Examples of direct services that will be considered for funding include:

  • Food access and security: meal delivery, food banks/pantries, and efforts to improve access to healthy and nutritious food for populations and geographic areas with limited access
  • Homelessness prevention and housing: shelters, case management, rapid-re-housing, and support that directly prevents homelessness
  • Job training and placement: programs that increase vocational skills, enhance job readiness, and facilitate job placement, with a special emphasis on training and opportunities for people with disabilities

The Foundation welcomes both general operating and program-specific grant requests that meet our eligibility requirements.
