The McConnell Foundation is an independent foundation located in Redding, California. As a broad-based funder, we have awarded grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, public education, and government entities located primarily in rural Northern California, and the countries of Nepal and Laos.
The McConnell Foundation's current areas of emphasis and funding are children, youth and education, community vitality, and scholarships. Grants are administered through their partnership with the Community Foundation of the North State.
We are rarely the sole funder of any project.
