The John F. and Mary A. Geisse Foundation supports organizations working to help the extremely poor of the developing world.
Most of our grantees are in the WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene), education, agriculture, and justice sectors.
The Foundation focuses on extreme poverty, funding US organizations working internationally within developing countries. We avoid investing in foreign organizations or countries with political instability or oppressive governments.
