    Roy A. Hunt Foundation


    The mission of the Roy A. Hunt Foundation is to support organizations that strive to improve the quality of life. As a family foundation, the Hunt Foundation funds a broad range of organizations reflecting the diverse interests of individual trustees. Over 500 grants are awarded each year. Most grants are general grants that are awarded for general operating support.

    The trustees of this family foundation meet semi-annually to make grants to nonprofit organizations engaged primarily in Environment, Community Development, and Youth Violence Prevention.

    The Foundation makes grants in two categories:

    • General Grants  Trustees personally invite most proposals for General Grants. Grantees are typically organizations serving the communities in which Trustees live or work, organizations for which family members have volunteered, or schools they have attended. Most grants are for general operating support or direct service programs and range from $5,000-$10,000. The Foundation adds few new organizations to this category each year.
    • Initiative Grants  The Trustees work in committees to invite and review proposals for larger grants focused on specific results in Community Development, the Environment, and Youth Violence Prevention. Initiative grants are typically in the range of $25,000-$50,000. Please see the Initiatives individual pages for their guidelines.
