Our grants.

The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation was formed to reach low-income and underserved populations, marginalized communities and causes often overlooked or underfunded by mainstream philanthropy. Dealing in the areas of homelessness, medical care, at-risk youth, education and the needs of wounded veterans, The Foundation provides transformational gifts to nonprofit organizations that are successfully addressing these issues and can demonstrate and measure the impact of their work.
