What We Fund

The Stockel Family Foundation supports innovative 501(c)(3) organizations providing direct services, intervention and education programs for those facing economic and/or developmental challenges in Greater Los Angeles and Atlanta. Our Mission is broad and flexible enough to encompass agencies from food banks and homeless shelters, to pre-schools, hospitals, and arts and environmental organizations, but we have chosen to focus primarily on early intervention for children age zero to five and their families, because it is there we believe we can have the most systemic impact.

We strive to build relationships with our grantees, so that we can imagine collaboratively how we might collectively address societal problems more effectively. Our aim is to balance support for proven strategies with openness to new ideas and a willingness to work across traditional non-profit silos. Any organization seeking funding through our Foundation must first be invited to submit a letter of inquiry.
