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.

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.
