Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations and government agencies to advance the quality of human services and promote racial equity. Funding is intended for programs that eliminate social barriers and advance policy solutions that help people to transition from poverty to long-term cycles of success.

The Kresge Foundation invests in improving the bedrock economic, social, cultural and environmental conditions of urban life, with an emphasis on reducing disparities facing low-income people; advancing their pathways of opportunity; and promoting cultural vibrancy, systems of mutual support and environmental sustainability in the communities in which they live.

The Foundation seeks to invest in efforts that:

  • Strengthen the functioning of existing human services public programs, systems and financing in ways that enable and accelerate greater social and economic mobility.
  • Integrate racial equity and inclusion as key enablers of advancing social and economic mobility.
  • Strengthen the functioning of existing programs, systems and financing in adjacent sectors (housing, early childhood education, workforce, etc.) vital to increasing social and economic mobility using a racial equity lens.
  • Advance policies that improve workforce development and education and training, support meaningful career pathways, asset building and financial services.
