The Olive Tree Foundation has been making grants to nonprofits in the United States since 1997. We are a private, independent philanthropy with members located throughout the couplants growing from coins from istockntry committed to extending our gifts, talents, and resources for the betterment of our communities.

We believe children should have access to basic necessities such as food, shelter, and clothing along with books that teach them to dream and opportunities that help them live out those dreams. We value health, education, family, neighborhoods, and literary, arts and cultural resources.

We will carry out our mission by making distributions to support organizations that establish, maintain and make accessible educational opportunities and assist in improving their community’s health and quality of life.
