The foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals for funding, but we DO want to be sure that we are aware of programs that maximize the  potential of children and youth in Santa Clara and Los Angeles Counties.

If you have NEVER received foundation funding, you may introduce your program to us via an online Letter of Introduction. The foundation uses this database when issuing invitations to submit a proposal, and we will contact you if we have an open RFP (Request for Proposals) that might be a good fit for your organization. The letter of introduction is not a formal proposal for funding, so please do not consider this a ‘pending’ grant request. It is intended to be a simple and quick way to let the foundation know about the work you are doing and to register in our database. You can submit your Letter of Introduction by clicking here and following the instructions.  Contact [email protected] with any questions.

If you are a CURRENT or FORMER grant recipient, you may provide informal updates to us via email at any time. We especially encourage you to let us know if you are expanding, replicating, evaluating and validating, or collaboratively sharing programs that work, or if there are opportunities where the foundation can provide technical assistance to you in our areas of expertise.

We review all letters of introduction and email updates on a rolling basis, year round, for possible partnership opportunities in the future.
