WHO WE ARE AND HOW WE WORK
The Dorrance Family Foundation supports projects that work to resolve societal, educational and environmental problems strategically and make our communities a better place. We accept grant proposals only for charitable, education, or scientific purposes from tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organizations in California and the Island of Hawaiʻi. We do not fund individuals. The Dorrance Family Foundation meets an average of 2-3 times a year to review and award grants to qualified organizations engaging primarily in our mission areas of education and natural resource conservation or local interests.
