How We Make A Difference

Our grants strengthen the relationship between the Aubrey & Marla Dan Foundation and the charities we support. Prioritizing youth mental health and youth homelessness, we welcome programs and initiatives that achieve tangible outcomes and interventions.

We are not focused on funding one-off workshops or brief initiatives. Instead, we are eager to invest in sustained efforts, leading to positive and lasting impacts in young people’s lives.
