About Us

Founded in 1940 by George and Grace Hoag and their son, George Grant Hoag II, the George Hoag Family Foundation is committed to making a positive difference in the communities it serves by improving social conditions, promoting human welfare and alleviating pain and suffering.

Over 75 years later, the family continues its long tradition of philanthropy and strives to be responsive to the changing community needs.

What We Fund

The George Hoag Family Foundation primarily applies its resources to benefit Southern California residents through funding healthcare programs, social service programs, and youth-oriented organizations. Currently, the foundation is focused on safety-net issues and basic need grants. We’re working to improve conditions for people throughout Los Angeles and Orange County.

The Foundation is principally interested in providing improved or expanded services through programs already in operation. The Foundation will make grants for capital expenditures, such as equipment purchases, construction and renovation. The Foundation will also consider general operating expenses on a case by case basis.
