How We Help


We award grants to organizations in the United States who devote their services to making a difference in the lives of families. Our recipients encompass charities that serve families struggling with hunger, homelessness, nutrition, obesity, education, financial education and other community issues. We look for these organizations to have innovative techniques to tackle these community issues and uses metrics to validate those techniques. We look for charities who have the drive and capacity to encouragement other charities through implementation of their programs. We feel that the impact of our grant is amplified when a program is modeled into a system that can be replicated by other charities.

McCottry Foundation focuses its funding on underserved communities across the United States. Our primary purpose is to ensure that children and families have access to the resources they need to improve their quality of life and strengthen their family units. To that end we strive to support non profits whose programs encompass:

  • Homelessness
  • Hunger
  • Nutrition
  • Obesity Awareness
  • Education
  • Financial Instability
  • other Community Issue

We work with like minded 501(c)(3) organizations working on innovative solutions for solving these and other community issues.
