Clif Bar Family Foundation
They started Clif Bar Family Foundation in 2006 to support grassroots groups with inspiring ideas and limited funds. They believe in the wisdom of starting small, seeing what works, and growing it genuinely.
Their theory of positive change is straightforward. Just as they celebrate the interconnections among their funding priorities, they seek to build interconnections among their grantees and support groups that leverage relationships to enhance their influence.
