Funding Hope. Changing Lives.
Changing Lives Isn't Easy. It's Amazing.
The Opus Community Foundation is committed to strengthening our communities and changing the lives of those in need. To do this, the Foundation provides grants to key nonprofit organizations that make a positive and meaningful impact in the communities where we live and work. To maximize the impact of our resources, the Opus Community Foundation focuses its efforts on the following key areas:
Affordable Housing and Community Revitalization
The Opus Community Foundation provides grants and investments that support the creation of affordable housing, as well as the creation and sustainability of safe, clean and desirable neighborhoods in the communities in which Opus Bank does business. The Opus Community Foundation supports programs that enhance the quality of life in the communities the bank serves and projects that promote economic self-sufficiency for residents of those communities, particularly for those of limited means.
Education and Financial Literacy
The Opus Community Foundation supports programs in the areas of education, after-school activities, mentoring, literacy, and other programs that give our youth a sense of community, inspiration, and promote self-worth. We also sponsor financial literacy programs in grades pre-K through 12, with preference given to schools serving LMI communities.
Community Health and Human Services
The Opus Community Foundation supports organizations that provide health and health-related assistance to children, the elderly, and underserved populations. These organizations and programs often include community health clinics, food banks, free meal providers, or agencies that promote the safety and well being of children or offer safety net services.
The Opus Community Foundation supports organizations that inspire artistic expression and bring culture to audiences throughout our communities, making life more vibrant for all. Special consideration is given to programs that create educational opportunities for children or serve LMI communities.
