Innovation Fund

Up to $1.5 million in grants for groundbreaking, early-stage initiatives.

Launched in December 2021, the Innovation Fund supports bold ideas focused on three impact areas affecting children and their families: mental health, school-based early interventions, and public health approaches to reducing gun violence.

Priority was given to organizations that work alongside marginalized communities, address the needs and aspirations of those communities and are committed to elevating leaders of color.

We are no longer accepting applications for the Innovation Fund. Grant recipients will be announced in summer 2022.

  • Flexible, multi-year grants
  • Open to applicants in CA, CT, MA, NY, NC and PA
  • External reviewers, including directly impacted community members, evaluated applications and made grant recommendations
