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

PIMCO Foundation

Grants Program

Through our Grants Program, we seek to be a catalyst for global change, supporting the innovative work of not-for-profit organizations around the world.

Our Focus

We focus our grantmaking in these areas:

  • Women’s social and economic empowerment
  • Community development in Orange County, CA and New York Metro
    • Through our community development focus area, we support organizations addressing food security, homelessness, college access and career readiness.
    • Please note: The above giving themes may change slightly before we release our 2018 RFP. You are encouraged to check this page in mid-March for our confirmed themes under the community development focus area.

Supporting Nonprofit Outcomes

We firmly believe organizations must have the capacity to support their infrastructure and human capital. For the grants we distribute, we allow an overhead rate of up to 25%.

The 2018 Timeline

Please check back in March for an update on our 2018 timeline. We anticipate posting the RFP at that time and opening our grant application window in April.
