Since 1945, The Sunderland Foundation has invested in the places and spaces where nonprofits do their work.


Grants from the Foundation help build the places where families in distress find help and healing, where young minds grow and thrive, and where communities come together for celebration and inspiration.

Our focus on funding bricks and mortar projects - including planning, design, construction, renovation, repairs and restoration - reflects our unique heritage and provides a necessary source of funding for established nonprofits that need new or improved facilities.

By supporting construction and special interest projects that allow nonprofits to fulfill their missions, the Sunderland Foundation fosters a stronger, safer and more vibrant future for the communities we serve.
