Capital Grants Initiative

Good facilities are essential to running great schools, efficient food pantries, and effective health care centers or job training programs. Robin Hood’s Capital Grants Initiative provides our grantees with advice, connections, and funding to build and improve brick and mortar facilities that support their work.
