Purpose at PIMCO

we give. we act. we advocate.

PIMCO Foundation

PIMCO Foundation

Our mission is to empower people globally to reach their full potential.

We believe in operating globally but also in supporting local organizations in the communities in which we live and work. Since establishing the PIMCO Foundation in 2000, we have worked to support hundreds of local nonprofits. Our Foundations in the U.S., U.K. and Germany support local communities via local grant programs.

Focus areas include:

  • Hunger - We have long supported efforts to alleviate hunger in the communities where we live and work. Through this focus area, we have a strategic partnership with The Global Food Banking Network as well as partnerships with Community Action Partnership of Orange County’s Food Bank and New York Common Pantry. We do not accept applications for our hunger-related grant-making.
  • Gender equality - We match the resources, time and talents of our people with leading organizations around the world tackling the essential challenges facing girls and women today. We do not accept applications for our gender equality-related grant-making.

About the U.S. Foundation’s Local Grants Program

In addition to our focus on hunger and gender equality, our U.S. Local Grants Program focuses on homelessness and college and career readiness.

Homelessness: We aim to support organizations that provide temporary residence to families and individuals experience homelessness. We will consider programs that offer emergency shelter and transitional housing – both with supportive services.

College and Career Readiness: Through our college readiness funding efforts, we will support programming that prepares underserved youth academically for education beyond high school. Through career readiness, we aim to invest in job and entrepreneurship training that will lead young adults to quality employment.
