The Rob and Melani Walton Foundation values innovative methods for driving social change, and our most successful partners are interested in working with other organizations, institutions, and individuals to create sustainable solutions that bring life to possibility.

The Rob and Melani Walton Foundation collaborates with both nonprofit and for-profit partners. The foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.

If you feel your project aligns with the foundation’s mission, you may complete and submit the form below. Our team will review and, if determined to be in alignment with our strategic focus, will be in touch to invite a formal grant proposal. The length of the inquiry review period varies depending on the nature of the project. If invited to apply, you can expect such an invitation within 60 days.

The foundation acknowledges the countless number of projects and programs doing great work across the nation and the world. We receive many more inquiries and solicited grant proposals than we can fund. An invitation to submit a formal grant proposal does not imply funding will be approved.

For general inquiries, please contact us.
