Compassionate Impact Grant Program

What is the Compassionate Impact Grant?

Foundation Beyond Belief usually chooses four beneficiaries to receive grants each quarter, but one quarter a year we feature a single, game-changing grant for one innovative organization. This grant is called the Compassionate Impact Grant (CIG).

The CIG program supports organizations with social initiatives that are:

  • innovative,
  • transformative,
  • evidence-based,
  • and solving community problems.

The Compassionate Impact Grant Program is an open, competitive process.

The application window for the 2019 Compassionate Impact Grant is currently closed. Information about eligibility and application requirements for 2020 will be posted here in early January 2020.
