Children, Youth and Family Grants: OPEN
Many things contribute to success in the early years. We are specifically interested in funding grant requests that: 

  • Provide services to help children and youth be healthy and well 
  • Strengthen a family’s skills and ability to nurture children/youth
  • Create a community culture of awareness and support 
  • Deliver high-quality education (0-18) 

Typical Grant Range: $2,000 - $500,000
Length: Single or multi year


Recent funded activities include but are not limited to:

  • Rural dental or medical initiatives
  • Prenatal care
  • Early childhood programs/workforce development
  • Child abuse prevention and intervention programs
  • Out-of-School activities

Children, Youth and Family requests need to:

  • Meet the Foundation’s eligibility and readiness requirements
  • Serve populations prenatal to age 18 
  • Serve communities in rural Oregon or Siskiyou County, Calif., with less than 35,000 in population not adjacent to or part of an urban or metropolitan area  
  • Target programs, projects, operating support, capital projects, capacity building, and/or  research 


  • Very small grants can be decided within two months. 
  • Large grants can take up to six months.  
  • If your request makes it beyond the initial review, we are happy to talk to you about decision timing to aid in your planning.
