The Strategic Grants Initiative is focused on funding:
The DevTo Support Foundation has launched an invitation-only Special Grants Initiative for a small group of organizations in Orange County and the Coachella Valley. We are seeking new new ideas and transformational programs that create pattern-breaking social change to improve the lives of at-risk populations, such as at-risk youth or emancipating foster youth, at-risk young mothers or women, youth disconnected from their families and/or faith, people in recovery, homeless or formerly homeless families, or others who are struggling to succeed. The Initiative does not accept unsolicited proposals
Two to five grants ranging from $100,000 to $250,000 will be awarded each year for up to three years.
The Foundation is interested in funding innovative ideas or transformational projects that help an organization
Programs that provide career development pathways, life skills development, mentoring and coaching, or create a social enterprise that teach participants business skills and entrepreneurialism while creating revenue for the nonprofit are of particular interest.
Grant funds may not be used for the following:
Only invited organizations may apply to the Special Grants Initiative.
If invited, please submit your Letter of Inquiry and required attachments via this website (Letter of Inquiry) no later than June 1.
If the Letter of Inquiry is approved, the applicant will be invited to submit a full Grant Application online.

The Foundation anticipates approving grant requests once per year in November. Notifications will be sent in December.
