Our Program Areas

Chambers Family Fund invests time, expertise and funding in organizations that are aligned with our mission and our program areas: Early Care and Education, Women’s Economic Self-Sufficiency, and Justice, Equality and Opportunity.

Early Care and Education
In early care and education of children, we focus our attention and resources on systemic change. Learn more about how we partner with organizations that are leaders in changing systems, educating the public and advocating for children and their future.

Women's Economic Self-Sufficiency
We seek to make sustained change by supporting systemic and policy efforts to improve women’s incomes, job security and their ability to provide adequately for their families. Learn more about women's economic self-sufficiency and how we have partnered with community foundations to create new statewide women's funds.

Justice, Equality and Opportunity
We strive to strengthen justice, equality and opportunity. Learn more about how we fund organizations that identify opportunities for policy change and address issues through research, public education and advocacy.

Honored Commitments

In addition to our program areas, the foundation makes grants that honor the interests of family board members. Generally, these grants are made for unique, one-time funding opportunities or for ongoing support of arts and culture, educational and religious organizations. Honored Commitments are given to organizations in which the family takes an active interest or has an established connection.
