Honoring Our 50th Anniversary

Recognizing the backbone of our work: our grantees

The Haas, Jr. Fund celebrated 50 years of grantmaking by awarding $5 million in unrestricted support to more than 110 nonprofits.

In 2003 the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund celebrated 50 years of grantmaking. We marked the occasion by honoring our grantees’ incredible work and awarding $5 million in unrestricted support grants to more than 110 nonprofits—half working on our key missions, and half providing critical help to the most needy in our community here in California.

We gave these grants as an expression of our respect for the strong leadership, determination and incredible talent of the staff and boards that power these worthy organizations. It’s been an honor being a part of the incredible work they do.
