Eligibility Guidelines

Aligning Common Values

To be eligible for funding, your organization must be a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization and work within our geographic and programmatic focus areas.

New organizations generally receive project support. Organizations that have received previous grants from the Sand Hill Foundation may also be eligible for capital, capacity building, and general operating support.

Sand Hill Foundation funds organizations and programs in San Mateo County and northern Santa Clara County – specifically, Daly City to Mountain View, from the coastside to the bay.

Please note that we do not fund or provide loans for individuals, medical research, or efforts designed to elect public officers. The Foundation will support only those organizations with strong and consistently applied non-discrimination policies.
