Our Grantmaking Process

The Reissa Foundation is committed to addressing social problems and improving the lives of vulnerable populations in California and Texas. In all our work, we aim for collaboration, open-mindedness, and impact. We work carefully with our partners to identify grantees working where we see the most need and the greatest potential for impact.

For these reasons, we do not accept unsolicited grant proposals.

Wherever we work, we start by listening, and we aim to be highly collaborative with nonprofits, government agencies, professionals, families, and other funders working in the community. We take a thoughtful, impact-oriented, but not over-complicated approach to our grantmaking. We encourage our grantees to propose new programs, and we’re eager to get them off the ground.
