The mission of the Josephine S. Gumbiner Foundation is to enrich the lives of women and children in Long Beach.

Josephine S. Gumbiner Foundation has invested more than $13 million dollars into the Long Beach non-profit community by awarding more than 1,500 grants.

Established in 1989, the Josephine S. Gumbiner Foundation (JSGF) supports organizations that enrich the lives of women and children in Long Beach.  Examples of programs we have supported include organizations providing temporary and transitional housing, after-school tutoring and mentoring, cultural enrichment, pre-K education, parental involvement, job training and mental/dental/health care, with a special emphasis on intervention, prevention and direct services. We provide general operating and program-specific support.  To view a complete list of programs we have funded in the past, check out our Grantmaking Section.

Grant applications will be accepted from tax-exempt organizations as defined by 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  The foundation does not make grants to individuals, political campaigns, lobbying efforts, programs that supplant traditional schooling or pass through organizations.  Organizations with net assets of less than $10,000,000 will be given preference, as determined by line 22 of their most recently filed IRS Form 990.
