The Rosendin Foundation mission is to positively impact communities, build and empower people, and inspire innovation, through financial grants and/or volunteer hours.
Grants are made to community-focused non-profit organizations located in the states where Rosendin and MPS currently conduct business. Grants are awarded in support of the Foundation’s current focus areas that align with the mission.
Just a few areas of past grantmaking include:
- Child advocacy
- Crisis and trauma support for victims
- Emergency and disaster relief
- Equine and riding therapy
- Food pantry and food redistribution
- Garden programs
- Health and recovery from diseases
- Human services
- Intellectually and developmentally disabled programs
- Mental health and suicide prevention
- Veterans programs, including those involving service animals / dogs
- Women’s programs
- Youth development programs, including sports programs
One-time emergency grant requests under $2,500 are accepted at any time.
Emergency grant requests constitute unplanned/unbudgeted expenditures arising due to unforeseen circumstances (ie fire, tornado, flooding, pandemic, loss of funding).
The foundation website includes a list of organizations currently supported (and a summary of what each organization does). Interested applicants can review this list to get a better idea if their organization is a good match for the foundation’s mission.
