Welcome to Red String

Thank you for visiting our website and welcome to Red String. 

Red String Foundation was incorporated December 22, 2019 and approved as a new nonprofit public benefit corporation established under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code on May 6, 2020.  The foundation's name is taken from the long long-held belief that a red string connects us to those we are destined to meet, protecting us from harm, guiding us to our purpose, and empowering us to be our best. It is this belief that is at the heart of Red String. 

We believe that every life deserves to be happy and meaningful; that people can improve their own lives when provided with the necessary skills, knowledge, support, and access to resources; and that only together is anything possible. 

 

Through our Focus Programs, we are working to help address issues in Children and Youth Education, Communities, and Senior Care.  To accomplish this, we are creating powerful new partnerships with Industry and charities that will open new opportunities to make a positive difference in the communities,  charities, and livelihoods that we invest in.  Please read about our Programs and Grants.

 

We hope you consider becoming part of Red String's story and let us become part of yours.  Join Us today.  

Grants
Like 2020, we are planning three grant cycles, 2Q, 3Q, and 4Q.   Learn more at our partner charity webpage.

​Follow Our Story:

The yarn we shall weave

begins with a thread,

the ending of which

has yet to be said,

and when it will,

I have not a clue,

but I'm not scared

now that you're with me,

and I'm with you.

Current Status

Welcome 2022 and the Year of the Tiger!  In 2021, we continued to make good progress in all of our goals:

 

  • Doubled our grant budget from 2020 while significantly lowering our expenses as our initial start-up costs were incurred in 2020.

  • Extended our reach beyond California and into Washington State, and added eight new partner charities

  • Continued our commitment to build long term relationships with existing partner charities.

  • Added focus in educational and youth development non-profits.   

  • Increased Corporate Matching Gifts to $6800 increasing our support and impacts.

In 2022, we look forward to continue to grow our impacts and deepen our relationships, at the same time, we will be working on some parts of our operations including improving our fundraising efficacy and fine tuning our long term strategies.
