Our Grantmaking:

We invest in nonprofits that strengthen communities and encourage people to become productive, thriving citizens. 

The Buck Foundation accepts letters of inquiry from qualified organizations in Colorado, and from Hana in East Maui, Hawai’i, where the family has a long-standing history. 

The Foundation is both a strategic grantmaker and a responsive grantmaker. We invest in both direct services and policies that create social justice.
