DescriptionThe Foundationís Business and Communities grants program focuses on the roles of businesses and communities in addressing economic isolation and strengthening the field of corporate citizenship. The Foundation seeks to address the conditions that perpetuate economic isolation in America through business-community partnerships. It also invests in projects to strengthen the corporate citizenship field. Of particular interest are partnerships that enable economically isolated people to retain and advance in their jobs, earn living wages, and accumulate savings and assets. The Foundation will fund high-impact opportunities such as business sectors that traditionally employ low-wage workers, for example: health care, hospitality, food services, apparel, and other manufacturing emphasizing retention and advancement in work. The Foundation will also look for ways that employers can help build savings and assets among low-income people. Grants will target two broad demographics: low-wage incumbent workers and economically isolated young people. Funded projects must focus on improving the ability of economically isolated people to work, earn living wages, and/or accumulate assets. Proposals may only be submitted at the Foundationís invitation. There is an online inquiry system for letters of inquiry.
