Overview:

NOTE: We Accept LOIs throughout the year—we do not have a deadline. If an LOI is approved, we ask you to complete a narrative application for board review. The board meets four times a year to award grants.

The Healy Foundation (formerly the Bill Healy Foundation) exists to build community and support the environment and youth by awarding grants and scholarships in Oregon and Hawaii.

Our Values

 Collaboration: We work in a spirit of collaboration and inclusiveness both within our organization and with our external stakeholders. 

Authenticity: We are committed to integrity in all that we do. We act truthfully (known as “pono” in Hawaiian culture) in every setting.

Compassion: We honor and respect the role of our grantees and partners, and we strive to always engage our giving with a spirit of joy.

Responsiveness: We recognize the importance of effective and timely communication and being accessible to all parties we engage with. We maintain and constantly strive to improve our giving protocols, while also remaining flexible to support projects that we believe in, and we are receptive to innovation and community need.

Continuous Learning: We understand there will always be more to learn, and we are committed to ongoing education in our focus areas and beyond. We remain curious to our world and seek innovative ways to be more impactful with our resources.

Youth + Environment + Community

We support people working to make communities more equitable for all and we believe in being stewards of the land we are lucky to call home. We respect the dedication and expertise of nonprofit teams we meet throughout the states of Oregon and Hawaii, and we believe they know best how to spend their grant dollars. For this reason, 100% of our grants are for general operating or unrestricted funds to nonprofit organizations striving to protect ecosystems, mitigate climate change, reduce child poverty and provide youth advocacy and education.  

Grantmaking

At the Healy Foundation we believe the nonprofit teams working throughout Oregon and Hawaii — where we live — are the experts in their fields. We do not want them spending hours re-inventing the wheel on existing programs and preparing tailored project budgets and reports unique to us. 

We trust our partners to make decisions on where to spend their grant money and how to measure impact. 

100% of our grants are for general operating/ unrestricted funding.
