The Fieldstone Foundation seeks to align resources with strong opportunities to address the Foundation’s targeted issues to help improve and sustain the communities within San Diego and Orange Counties. We do so by building long-term relationships with nonprofit partners that empower us to achieve excellence in stewardship, while supporting the long-term capacity of nonprofits to create sustainable impact.

We have an annual grantmaking process, which is by invitation only. The Fieldstone Foundation will be initiating all grant considerations. We will not be accepting any unsolicited grant inquiries this year.
