Advancing Innovative Work
The Special Opportunities Program supports projects reflecting the Foundation’s mission and underlying values, including its longstanding commitment to racial equity and justice. These are one-time only grants that are especially timely and compelling. At times, these grants serve as a laboratory for new ideas.
Public Welfare Foundation currently is funding two special opportunities program areas: Race, Redemption, and Restoration; and Getting Local: District of Columbia. To apply for a grant under the Special Opportunities Program, please submit a Letter of Inquiry.
The Foundation looks for strategic points where its funds can make a significant difference and improve lives through policy and system reform that results in transformative change.
