About this funder:



Our Standard Grant program was established to provide resources for projects and programs that make visible impacts in communities throughout California. Since 2006, these funds have helped construct music facilities, restore historical buildings, preserve and acquire open spaces, protect endangered species, and facilitate the implementation of hundreds of other projects that fit within our areas of funding:

  • Ecosystem Conservation
    • Projects and programs that focus on the enhancement of habitats in which plants and wildlife thrive. We know that proper conservation and restoration of our ecosystems can only be accomplished when like-minded organizations work together for this common goal
  • Historical Landmark Restoration
    • Restoration, preservation, or acquisition of projects with historical significance that are 100 years or older, including new construction, enhancements, or improvements to buildings, monuments, landmarks, and documents.
  • Music & Visual Arts
    • Projects and programs that promote a robust arts community where talented artists can have adequate access to training, working facilities, artist work spaces, and other resources.
  • Plant & Wildlife Protection
    • Private organizations that desire to see plant and wildlife flourish and that work for the protection and conservation of endangered and threatened species.
  • Land Conservation
    • Protection and management of land with scenic, agricultural, or cultural values, such as parks, streams, and botanical gardens. We fund non-advocacy organizations with an active membership base that are hands-on and committed.
