For Grantseekers

Please note that the Foundation has suspended Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) until January 2022.

Thank you for your interest in partnering with the Lesher Foundation.

The Foundation makes grants to 501(c)(3) organizations that are located in or directly benefit the residents of Contra Costa County, California, in support of children and families, education, and arts and culture.

Please visit our Impact Grants and Responsive Grants pages to learn more about each of these areas, and download our Grant Guidelines and Application Instructions.

You can also view our Grant Application Deadlines here.

For our responsive grants, we accept letters of inquiry from eligible organizations that have never received foundation funding.
