Our Grants

Since the mid 2000’s, The James B. McClatchy Foundation has awarded over $12M in grants and invested countless invaluable time and resources spent coaching and developing our grantees as learning partners –  that is how the James B. McClatchy Foundation views the organizations which receive grants from the Foundation. All organizations that receive grants from us are curated from an invitation list and receive commissioned grants. None of our grantmaking is competitive to the greater community, which allows the Foundation to be laser-focused and match-making strategy with its community investments.

We Partner with You

In the Foundation world, organizations that receive grants are often referred to as “grantees.” At The James B. McClatchy Foundation, we consider them our partners in a higher calling. While The James B. McClatchy Foundation provides financial support, technical assistance, and other resources, our grantee-partners bring learning opportunities and real world insights. This enriches our thinking, helps us improve our grantmaking and partnerships in real-time, and contributes knowledge that informs the philanthropic and subject-matter field.
