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. Grants are awarded in two program areas: increasing access to education, and improving the lives of women and girls. The Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation believes that intersectionality is an essential principle in our grantmaking and we intentionally prioritize the needs of women and girls of color throughout 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.
