OVERVIEW: The Hexberg Foundation does not maintain a specific global health grantmaking program. However, it supports modest grants to U.S.-based global health organizations that operate in developing countries.
IP TAKE: Without a website or formal staff, this funder seeks a low public profile. While it does not accept unsolicited requests for funding, grantseekers should not be deterred from introducing themselves to the foundation.
PROFILE: Located in Laguna Beach, California, the Hexberg Family Foundation awards modest grants to global health causes. Though the foundation does not operate a website, its recent tax filings indicate a tendency to support HIV/AIDS research and the provision of healthcare supplies and services. On a smaller scale, Hexberg supports projects that address women’s and girls’ rights.
The foundation annually awards several grants, which range from $5,000 to $15,000. These grants often support larger international organizations rather than local and grassroots NGOs. However, Hexberg supports both small and large organizations, so smaller groups should not be deterred.
Hexberg does not have a specific global health grant making program and does not appear to have geographic restrictions regarding its global giving. The foundation also does not maintain a formal, paid staff. It also does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
