AREAS OF GRANTMAKING
Resilient Local Community
Cradled in Silicon Valley, San Jose is the 10th largest city in the nation and has one of the highest rates of economic inequity in the country. To address this disparity, the Foundation believes in the importance of building local resident power and supports San Jose community organizations, emerging leaders, and a strong ecosystem of city government, nonprofits, and residents.
The Foundation supports projects that build the organizational effectiveness of its current grantees. Note: these funds are only available to organizations that are active Foundation grantees.
The Foundation’s journalism grants strive to strengthen and sustain journalism as an essential arm of U.S. democracy. This includes support of key organizations and leaders in investigative journalism, protection of the press, and those that elevate underrepresented voices and content in mainstream media.
The Foundation’s CEO Fund includes grants outside the Foundation’s primary program areas. Grants in this portfolio include work preventing firearm violence and responding to emergencies, among other initiatives.
