The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation directs its grants to a limited number of initiatives. We seek to deepen the impact of our philanthropy through better understanding of complex issues; through the learning and adaptation that arise from working with strategic intent; and through the building of strong relationships.

Community organizations may be invited to respond to a request for proposals to help further the goals of our initiatives or the Foundation’s overall mission.

Unsolicited proposals are only considered via our online application process. They are reviewed and may result in a request for a full proposal, be filed for possible future consideration, or, if they fall outside our granting guidelines, declined.
