About the Foundation

The Olive Tree Foundation, Inc. is a private, independent philanthropy committed to extending our gifts, talents, and resources for the betterment of our communities.

We have been making grants to U.S.-based nonprofits since 1997 because we believe people should have access to basic necessities, such as food, shelter, and clothing along with books that teach them to dream and opportunities that help them live out those dreams. We value education, family, neighborhoods, and literary, arts, and other cultural resources.

We will carry out our mission by making distributions to support organizations that establish, maintain and make accessible these opportunities and assist in improving quality of life in their communities.


The Olive Tree Foundation, Inc. makes competitive grants to applicants who best meet the eligibility qualifications in the grantmaking year.
