The underlying focus in all of our work is on empowering low-income people to help them live better. Our National Giving Program allows us to work strategically with organizations working across one or more states to address social issues strongly aligned with our focus areas. We often provide funds to organizations that have local affiliates around the country, and the majority of grants from this program include re-grants to implement programs in local communities.

We make a big impact by partnering with organizations that operate on a national scale in communities throughout the country. Our grantee partners such as Feeding America, City Year, Growing Power, the American Heart Association, Dress for Success and many others touch thousands of lives every day through national programs that help people in the largest cities and the smallest towns live better.
