Grants to California nonprofit organizations for programs in the areas of environment, health, and music programming. Funding may also be requested for programs that provide educational opportunities in the areas of arts and environment. The Foundation's grantmaking areas include:

Environment and Health Program Priorities - To promote the long-term good health and viability of communities and regions:

-By supporting programs to prevent harm to human health from toxic substances and other environmental hazards;

-By encouraging planning and development at the regional level, aimed at integrating economic and social goals with sound environmental policies; and

-By supporting initiatives for sustainability in agriculture and food systems.

Music Program Priorities - To encourage the playing, enjoyment and accessibility of symphonic and chamber music:

-By providing scholarship and program assistance at selected community music centers, schools and institutes; and

-By helping community-based ensembles of demonstrated quality implement artistic initiatives, diversify and increase audiences, and improve fund-raising capacity.

Education Program Priorities - To provide environmental and arts education opportunities to children and youth:

-By supporting programs for educators and artists to improve and apply their teaching skills in these subjects; and

-By supporting efforts to advance environmental and arts education programs.

Special Projects:

Special Project grants are recommended for funding by trustees of the Foundation and typically fall outside the Foundation’s program guidelines. Special Project grants cannot be applied for by the grantee organization.

The Foundation does not make grants to individuals or to organizations that are not 501(c)(3) public charities.

The Foundation gives priority to proposals from California organizations.

Nonprofit organizations seeking a grant from the foundation should begin by submitting an LOI application through the Foundation’s online application system.

The Foundation has two funding rounds each year, typically in May or June and November.

The next deadline for receiving LOI applications is August 1, 2017.

You may submit an LOI at any time. The deadline date means that the Foundation will consider the request before the next round of funding. Even if a request is submitted after the deadline, it may still be considered for the next round of funding but there is no guarantee that the Foundation will be able to do this.
