You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Applicant organizations must be classified as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and as public charities under Section 509(a) of that code.
  • The geographic focus of the Foundation’s grantmaking program is San Francisco, California, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
  • The Board reserves the right to approve grants in other locations at its discretion.
  • While the Foundation entertains requests from a wide variety of organizations, most grants are initiated at the direction of the program staff and Board of Trustees of the Foundation.


  • The Foundations do not encourage requests for:
    • Support for conferences or trainings
    • Endowment contributions
    • Debt reduction
    • Organizations based outside the United States
    • Support for organizations that are not a 501(c)(3) or government agency, and therefore require a fiscal sponsorship, unless the sponsorship is a temporary situation and/or the sponsorship arrangement meets rigorous criteria for oversight and support
    • Support for individuals
    • Event sponsorships
