The TWANDA Foundation welcomes grant applications from any qualified 501(c) (3) organization in the San Francisco Bay Area that has an innovative approach in one or more of our priority areas. The TWANDA Foundation will NOT fund:

    • Organizations that discriminate based on religion, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, political beliefs, or disabilities.
    • Lobbying or political activities
    • Commercial business purposes
    • Any litigation that is underway, contemplated, or completed.
    • Direct grants to individuals

In addition, the TWANDA Foundation does not typically fund capital campaigns.

For each of our three focus areas, our selection criteria will look favorably on those grants requests that are:
    • Creative, original, and show promise in affecting change
    • Have long-term impact, as opposed to a one-time only benefit
