Since 1976, we have partnered with donors to distribute more than $120M to the community.

Collaboratory offers numerous types of grantmaking programs, including donor-advised funds, endowments, scholarships, field-of-interest funds, giving circles, and agency funds.

We are leveraging a portion of our funds to increase diverse investment in the work of coalition partners to achieve the 2040 Goal. Recognizing no big social problem can be overcome by a single organization, our strategy aims to support cross-sector, regional partners working to improve regional outcomes by developing solutions with an integrated—as opposed to an isolated—approach.

We do not currently have a competitive grant cycle open.
