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 held beliefs that a red string is a representation of protection, faith, good luck, strength, and connection.  It is a reflection of who we are and what we aspire to become.

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.

​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

As 2021 quickly comes to a close, we are proud of the support and value we were able to deliver

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

  • Sponsored school and health care packages for two at-risk youths

  • 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 as we begin initial studies into creating our own educational programs and content.   

  • Increased Corporate Matching Gifts by 34 percent, increasing our support and impacts.
