Borch Foundation: Grants for Northern California

OVERVIEW:  The Borch Foundation’s grantmaking includes support of education, human services, and animal organizations.

IP TAKE: The foundation keeps a low public profile, which limits information available on its grantmaking priorities and activities.

FUNDING AREAS: Education and youth, human services/humanitarian, environment and animals

PROFILE: Established in 2007, the Borch Foundation was founded by tech mogul Chris Borch and his wife Andrea. Chris and Angela Borch have written for Christian Science media outlets. Chris also ran track at Furman University, and the couple has given millions to Chris’ alma mater. While the foundation lacks transparency and does not maintain a public website, tax filings suggest that the Borch Foundation supports education, human services, and animal organizations.

Borch Foundation grants range from $500 to $230,000. Past grantees include Arden Wood, whose mission is to “support healing through skillful Christian Science nursing care and training, inspired living, and Christly service”; Second Harvest Food Bank; LifeMoves (formerly InnVision Shelter Network); Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley; and Humane Society Silicon Valley.
