Helping People
Help Themselves

Founded in 1984, we are a family foundation based in Santa Ynez, California that aims to help the poor help themselves.  We believe in empowering individuals and communities to break the cycle of poverty and achieve self-sufficiency.  Please note there have been recent changes in our philanthropic strategy and the website will be updated in coming months.  We are not accepting unsolicited grants in the meantime.  Contact Pamela Grattan or Caleigh Hernandez (info in Contact Section)  if you have questions.


We pride ourselves in taking an active role with our nonprofit partners. Investing in them, just as they invest in others.
