Areas of Focus

Funding Process

The Rainwater Charitable Foundation accepts proposals for funding by invitation only, but may accept LOIs for education-related programs that fall within our current areas of focus. Our team reviews LOIs twice a year, in April and October.

Theory of Change

Our mission at the Rainwater Foundation is to work alongside organizations and communities so that every child, regardless of their circumstances, has opportunities for future success.

We seek to do this by:
  • Supporting initiatives that provide children with high quality learning experiences to prepare them socially, emotionally, and academically to be successful in life
  • Supporting initiatives that increase family economic security
  • Supporting efforts to build social and physical capital in communities, especially within underinvested and generationally disenfranchised neighborhoods
  • And supporting initiatives that remove barriers to resources and expand opportunities for children, starting at birth
