About this funder:
We are accepting grant applications that support health and human services nonprofits addressing food and housing insecurities and the economic impact of reduced and lost work.

During the current phase of grantmaking, we have added education as a funding area, to benefit children who have increased educational needs relating to COVID-19.Applications will be reviewed and decisions will be made on a regular basis.
Maximum amount per grant is $20,000.
