The Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation awards grants to nonprofit organizations that serve people and communities in the Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties (also known as the tribal lands of the Amah Mutsun, Ohlone, Chalon, Awaswas, and Esselen nations), and occasionally the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. We focus on intersectional feminism, improving the lives of women and girls, and promoting educational equality for all community members. The Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation believes that intersectionality is an essential principle in our grant-making and we intentionally prioritize women and girls of color throughout all our funding areas. The Foundation does not accept unsolicited Letters of Inquiry (LOIs)/proposals; please review the Apply for a Grant instructions for more information.
Unsolicited LOIs will not be accepted.
