The Atkinson Foundation provides opportunities for individuals to attain their highest potential in areas of educational, social, and economic life; to assist their efforts to become independent and self-sufficient; and generally to improve the quality of their lives.
We focus our funding in two specific program areas, and review proposals using a social justice lens: a) Education and Youth Development; b) Community.
Most grants range between $5,000 and $15,000. Grant amounts vary depending on an organization’s size, project, and need.
The foundation supports public charities operating under an IRS 501(c)(3) status or fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3) organization; and organizations that provide direct services to residents of San Mateo County, California.
It is always favorable if an organization demonstrates cooperation with other service providers, and has diverse and broad-based support from the community.
