Grantmaking

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation supports leading nonprofit organizations, and it partners with foundations, philanthropists, governments, and corporations to solve social problems in the United States and around the world. Currently, more than half of our annual grants are international.

We cultivate long-term partnerships with key organizations that deliver measurable results in our priority areas. A small proportion of funding aids other areas. The Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.
