Grants to California nonprofit organizations for programs that benefit local residents in the areas of arts and culture, education, and youth development. Funding is intended to enrich the lives of children and youth in grades K-12, promote civic engagement in arts and culture, and address local needs in the communities surrounding the funding source's offices and manufacturing facilities. Programs must serve Oakland residents.

The foundation currently concentrates its contributions in the focus areas described below:

Cultural Arts:

The foundation supports cultural initiatives, programs, and projects that increase awareness of, participation in and appreciation of arts and culture. The Arts Mini-Grants Initiative, as part of the cultural programming focus, provides small grants to support Oakland’s nonprofit visual and performing arts community events. Funds must be used for programs that are nonsectarian. 


The foundation supports innovative education programs that serve children and youth from kindergarten through 12th grade, focused on literacy and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Grants in this focus area are by invitation only. 

Youth Development:

The foundation prioritizes organizations and programs that practice strengths-based, intersectional youth development rooted in the inherent potential of young people. Programs should provide differentiated and personalized interventions for young people that address persistent barriers to opportunity and are responsive to unique challenges faced by young people in their local communities.

Following foundation grant guidelines, Clorox manufacturing plants and remote offices operate small giving programs in their local communities. These programs are administered independently and generally serve nonprofit organizations within a three-to-five mile radius of these facilities.
