Grants of up to $5,000 to USA nonprofit organizations to enhance the quality of life for residents. Focus areas include youth, veterans, and human services. The purpose of this program is to support initiatives that empower youth, serve veterans, or address basic needs for underserved individuals.

Focus Areas:

  • Veterans: Serving the emerging and long-term needs of the nation’s veterans and their families. In an effort to recognize the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made on behalf of our country, FOA Cares proudly supports active military personnel, veterans, and their families on a local level. FOA Cares provides resources to nonprofit veteran’s service organizations whose programs connect veterans and their families facing hardships to an array of critical human services.
  • Youth Development: Empowering youth to become compassionate and responsible members of society. The future drivers of change for the development and stability of the country are today’s youth. FOA Cares supports life-enhancing programs that engage youth within their communities, schools, social groups, and families, that are positive and constructive to the development of their character, and enable all young people to reach their full potential.
  • Human Services: Enhancing access to basic needs for underserved individuals and families. Human services strives to meet basic human needs by focusing on prevention as well as remediation of problems. FOA Cares is committed to improving the overall quality of life for individuals and families at their point of most urgent need. To achieve this, FOA Cares is engaged in numerous initiatives with nonprofits whose programs and services work to prevent or end homelessness.
