Philanthropy Spotlight: Foundation for a Change

National borders are not an obstacle when it comes to the Foundation for Change and its continuing quest for social justice.

Since 1983, the foundation has been aiding community members in the San Diego-Tijuana region in raising issues of human rights, economic justice and environmental sustainability. As a networking foundation, the organization is partnered with the California Endowment, the California Wellness Foundation and Planned Parenthood of San Diego and Riverside counties.

Seeking to empower communities to make their own change rather than simply providing charity, the foundation encourages grassroots action. The foundation’s all-volunteer Grantmaking Committee provides seed money to valuable groups that might be off the radar of traditional funding institutions and then “waters” the investment with additional funding in successive years if the group proves effective in promoting social change.

The foundation also provides leadership and organizational development to action groups. The ultimate vision of the Foundation for Change is a “bi-national garden” of grassroots organizations in the San Diego-Tijuana region, working to create a more just and humane world.
