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

PIMCO Foundation

PIMCO Foundation's Giving Programs

PIMCO's commitments go beyond investment management. In addition to focusing on meeting our responsibilities to the people and institutions who rely on us to manage their retirement and investment assets, we contribute to the communities where we work and live by giving our time and resources through The PIMCO Foundation.

Grants Program

The PIMCO Foundation’s Grants Program has been in existence since 2000. We accept unsolicited proposals once a year. This call for proposals seeks applications from qualified non-profit organizations which provide programs that fit with one of our three funding priorities – Critical Community Needs, Education, and Gender Equality and Economic Development. To further understand these program areas, we invite you to review our 2016 Request for Proposal (RFP).

How to Apply

Application Process and Timeline

This year, the request for proposal process will be conducted in one phase via a single grant application. All application materials must be submitted via the online application portal, which will be made available here, on our website, on the dates noted below.

We are now accepting applications for the Critical Community Needs focus area.

Education and Gender Equality/Economic Development focus areas

  • We are no longer accepting applications. The window will reopen in 2017.

You can find out more information by downloading the Request for Proposals PDF.
