The mission of the Footprint Foundation is to foster meaningful and inclusive connections to our communities. We strive to enrich learning, honor the natural environment, address social justice, and build a creative culture.
The foundation’s approach to philanthropy focuses on grants in Chattanooga TN and Northern California that invest in people with new ideas for strengthening community.
We value efforts that:
- Attract and retain talent
- Generate new leadership
- Take risks
- Explore new ideas and approaches
- Support collaborations that engage under-served populations
- Enrich public spaces
- Build community
Footprint does not make grants toward capital campaigns, capital projects, or annual campaigns.
Grant requests are received by invitation only.
