About Trellis Charitable Fund

Trellis Charitable Fund is a Washington, DC-based family foundation. It was established in 1998 to support philanthropic activities and institutions selected by its board of trustees.

Trellis Charitable Fund gives voice to the voiceless, exposes injustices and advocates for change both here and abroad.

What We Do:
We give grants to groups whose rigorous research and strategic interventions successfully change people’s lives. We support those organizations who tackle the toughest and most complex societal issues. We are particularly interested in how groups harness the power of communications to bring about positive change.

The Fund also supports projects of visual arts institutions through the medium of photography.

We neither accept nor consider unsolicited proposals or letters of inquiry.
