The Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation awards grants to nonprofit organizations that serve people and communities 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. We focus on intersectional feminism, improving the lives of women, girls, and gender-expansive individuals, and promoting educational equity 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 proposals; please review the Apply for a Grant instructions for more information.
