Working for systemic change.Ocean with Fish

The Rauch Foundation invests in ideas and organizations that spark positive systemic change.

We are not afraid of controversial ideas, original approaches, or new ways to tackle old problems. However, we do look for sound data, leadership, other grant partners, strong management skills, and a focus on evidence-based outcomes. Once we invest in the work of an organization, our involvement may include a long-term partnership or assistance with capacity building and leadership.

We are committed to partnering with nonprofits and NGOs, the private sector, labor, research institutions, universities, the media, and other funders to help achieve shared goals and work through common issues.

Although we do not accept unsolicited proposals, we invite organizations to send us information about programs and initiatives you see as a fit within our program priorities.

We prefer corresponding virtually and so inquiries should be sent to Organizations invited to submit proposals will have the opportunity to do so through our online web portal.
