The Olive Tree Foundation, Inc. is a private, independent philanthropy comprised of members committed to extending our gifts, talents, and resources for the betterment of our communities.
We have been making grants to U.S.-based nonprofits since 1997 because 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 education, family, neighborhoods, and literary, arts, and cultural resources.
We carry out our mission by making distributions to support organizations that establish, maintain, and make accessible these opportunities and assist in improving quality of life in their communities.
NOTE: The next grant application process begins on Jan. 2, 2020. Due to the number of applications we receive, only grantees will be notified of the decision on their proposals.
