Overview:

Note: The Green Family Foundation considers grant applications through a request for proposal (RFP) process. Throughout the year, we issue RFPs to organizations on an invitation-only basis. After an RFP is issued, applications will be considered by GFF's executive board. If the project fits within the context of the foundation’s mission and values, an invitation will be presented to submit a full proposal.

Background

Founded in 1991 by Steven J. Green, former United States Ambassador to Singapore, the Green Family Foundation (GFF) is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting social programs that positively impact global health and alleviate poverty.

The Green Family Foundation’s mission is to make a positive and meaningful impact in communities both at home and abroad. We provide funding and resources to organizations that support education, global health and community development. GFF empowers under-served communities to fight the cycle of extreme poverty, leading to sustainable programs that improve lives.

GFF supports grassroots initiatives that provide quality care to those in need by focusing on prevention, education and treatment. The foundation empowers communities through grants that enable progressive organizations to help build self-reliance. Today, Kimberly Green, president, continues to advance her family’s vision.

Grants

The Green Family Foundation provides funding to support holistic programs that have a direct impact on global health, alleviating poverty and empowering communities. Grants may be used to support launch or expansion activities with the end goal of establishing sustainability for the organization.

We are interested in supporting grassroots organizations that provide quality and creative programming that directly impacts poverty and global health. 

We lend our resources to programs, both at home and abroad, that focus on:

Global Health & Development: GFF provides grants to organizations that use education, health services, jobs and community participation to bridge the gap between poverty and access to opportunity. We support holistic approaches to health and development programs aimed at achieving the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. Our programs focus on education, care, treatment, research and sustainable activities that enable communities to become self-sufficient.

Community Empowerment: GFF supports programs that provide continuing education opportunities for adults and teens. Focus areas include access to technology, computer literacy and social advocacy. Whether an organization teaches people how to create their own Web sites, educates peers on the First Amendment or registers new voters, GFF supports efforts that strengthen communities through participation, education and activism.

Youth Arts: GFF supports programs that inspire youth to creatively and effectively express their views in constructive, progressive ways. The ultimate goal for GFF-funded youth arts programming is to provide an avenue for creative expression and an opportunity for a successful future.

Education: GFF also encourages programs where young people are challenged to think outside of their community norms so they can broaden their understanding of social challenges, health awareness, government and interpersonal communication.
