Fleishhacker Foundation’s Education Grants for Literacy Programs (California)


Fleishhacker Foundation has launched its Education Grants to invest in K-5 literacy programs.

Donor Name: Fleishhacker Foundation

State: California

Counties: Alameda County (CA), Contra Costa County (CA) , San Francisco County/City (CA), Marin County (CA), Sonoma County (CA), San Mateo County (CA), Santa Clara County (CA)

Type of Grant: Grant

Deadline (mm/dd/yyyy): 12/06/2021


Grants are awarded to Bay Area organizations whose work is primarily focused on providing direct literacy services to students from under-resourced public schools. The Foundation prioritize programs that address longstanding inequities in access to quality academic resources for students of color, immigrant students, and students from low-income families.

The Foundation supports programs that improve early reading readiness, promote grade-level attainment by the end of 3rd grade, and ensure that students leave 5th grade ready for the more challenging work of middle and high school, including college preparatory courses. They give priority to programs that work collaboratively with classroom teachers on school-based curricula and those that serve a significant number of students. By focusing their limited resources on these core objectives, we aim to further the impact of dynamic, community-based organizations that are working to expand educational and life opportunities so that each child can reach their full potential.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Grants will be made to Bay Area nonprofit, community-based organizations providing direct K-5 literacy services to students.
  • Grants will be awarded to organizations whose primary mission is academic support for students attending under-resourced public schools or whose programming is largely concentrated in this area.
  • Grants will only be made to organizations located and primarily offering programming in San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Sonoma, San Mateo, and/or Santa Clara counties.
  • The Foundation will look more favorably on applicants whose Boards provide strong support for the organization as evidenced by the percentage of Board members making annual gifts.
