PIMCO believes that we have a responsibility to give back and to be a force for good.

PIMCO Foundation

Local Grants Program

Through our Local Grants Program, we seek to be a catalyst for change, supporting the innovative work of not-for-profit organizations in Orange County, CA and the New York Metro Area.

Our Focus

  • Homelessness
    • We aim to support organizations that provide temporary residence to families and individuals experiencing homelessness. We will consider programs that offer emergency shelter and transitional housing – both with supportive services.

  • College and Career Readiness
    • Through our college readiness funding efforts, we will support programming that prepares underserved high school youth academically for education beyond high school.
    • Through career readiness, we aim to invest in job and entrepreneurship training that will lead young adults to quality employment.
