Our nonprofit partners help people in need, save lives, and make magic happen every day. We are proud to support their hard work!

Roots & Wings supports the remarkable work of hundreds of nonprofit organizations seeking to build healthier, stronger, and safer futures for children and families. Our approach to grantmaking is rooted in trust that our grantee partners’ connection to the communities they support gives them perspective and expertise that funders rarely achieve. We know the services our partners provide are integral to overcoming inequity and building a world where all families and children can reach their full potential. We also know those same organizations are consistently over-worked and under-resourced.

We think funders can, and must, work harder to reduce the burdens foundations have historically imposed on nonprofits. To help our partners stay focused on their mission, we strive to minimize distractions like complicated grant processes, lengthy applications, evaluation requirements, detailed grant reporting, and more. You can learn more about our trust-based principles on our approach page.

If you’re inspired by our grantee partner stories, consider supporting them by donating directly.

The nonprofit organizations you see throughout our site are almost always over-worked and under-resourced. Their work is essential, but budget constraints are a constant source of stress for most groups. Roots & Wings does all we can to fund and sustain our partners, but we are just one foundation, and their needs are far greater than we alone can cover. We encourage you to reach out and make direct donations if you are in a position to do so.
