Marguerite Casey Foundation

Marguerite Casey Foundation nurtures a movement led by low-income families advocating for change by providing substantial long-term grants that cross issues, regions, egos, politics, organizational turf, race and ethnicity. Through its multi-year general support grantmaking, the Foundation stands in partnership with grantees and local networks to make community change. The Foundation doesn’t set the agenda; the families and activists on the ground do. The Foundation provides funding in the areas of advocacy, activism and education, rather than issue-specific funding, recognizing that families do not experience poverty one issue at a time.
