Smart and bold in action.

The Rauch Foundation believes strong partnerships with its grantees will lead to critical, lasting change.

We seek out organizations with smart ideas and bold visions for change and invest in their development. We have both long-term “partner grantees”, as well as emerging partnerships with innovative new programs.

We invite you to read about the progress being made by some of our most successful grantees.
