Purpose at PIMCO

we give. we act. we advocate.

PIMCO Foundation

PIMCO Foundation

Our mission is to empower people globally to reach their full potential.

We believe in operating globally but also in supporting local organizations in the communities in which we live and work. Since establishing the PIMCO Foundation in 2000, we have worked to support hundreds of local nonprofits. Our Foundations in the U.S., U.K. and Germany support local communities via local grant programs.

Focus areas include:

  • Hunger

    We have long supported efforts to alleviate hunger in the communities where we live and work.

    This includes our partnership with the Global FoodBanking Network (GFN), a nonprofit organization that feeds the world’s hungry through launching and strengthening food banks in 32 countries around the world.
  • Gender equality

    We match the resources, time and talents of our people with leading organizations around the world tackling the essential challenges facing girls and women today.

About the U.S. Foundation’s Local Grants Program

In addition to our focus on hunger and gender equality, our Local Grants Program focuses on homelessness and college and career readiness.

Homelessness: We aim to support organizations that provide temporary residence to families and individuals experience 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 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.
