Every year, the Pacific Life Foundation receives more requests than it can fund. For this reason, the Foundation has established guidelines that allow it to use its resources as wisely as possible. Receiving and reviewing grant requests at a predetermined time each year provides the framework for a thorough and thoughtful grant making process.
The Pacific Life Foundation accepts grant proposals from agencies seeking funds for programs and projects in the areas of health and human services; education; arts and culture; and civic, community, and environment.
Annual funding of grants allows the Foundation to respond to a broad spectrum of community needs by partnering with nonprofit agencies that serve a large geographic area.Geographical Considerations
Contributions are made primarily in areas with large concentrations of Pacific Life employees: generally, the greater Orange County, California, area. Ideally, agencies should serve a large area, usually including more than one city or community. In addition, some grants are provided in greater Omaha, NE. A few California statewide and national organizations also receive support.
Applications for funding assistance must be received between July 15 – August 15
to receive consideration for the following calendar year’s budget. Announcement of pledges is made in early November, with payment intended to be made before the end of January. Award of a grant does not mean that future support will automatically be available.2014 Funding Requests
