About The Foundation
The Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation was founded in 2008.
The mission of the Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation is to center the margin, creating and supporting strategies to reach gender and racial equity.
The Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation believes that intersectionality is an essential principle in our work and we intentionally prioritize women, girls, and gender-expansive individuals of color throughout our programming.
The Foundation focuses on the following program areas:
- Gender equity and intersectional feminism, in an effort to improve the lives of women and girls (including cis women and girls, trans women and girls, and nonbinary, gender nonconforming, and genderqueer people);
- Education, in an effort to ensure equal access to education for all community members.
The Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation awards grants to nonprofit organizations primarily in Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties (the tribal lands of the Amah Mutsun, Ohlone, Chalon, Awaswas, and Esselen nations), occasionally in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, and organizations and programs with statewide impact across California or national impact across the US. Grants are restricted to the United States. We do not accept unsolicited proposals.
The Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation is a registered 501c3 non-profit.
