As the philanthropic arm of CoreCivic, the mission of the CoreCivic Foundation is to support former offenders, victims of crime and abuse, and underserved youth. We accomplish this by providing time, resources, and service to nonprofit organizations working with these groups.
Nonprofit organizations that have a well-defined sense of purpose, a demonstrated commitment to maximizing available resources and a history of delivering quality services are encouraged to apply for a grant through the CoreCivic Foundation.
New Applicants are asked to complete a preliminary letter of inquiry and submit to the CoreCivic Foundation via email prior to applying. New applicants should describe the organization's goals and objectives and the approximate amount of funding required. Once the CoreCivic Foundation Committee has reviewed the initial inquiry, the organization will be contacted regarding next steps.
Existing Applicants should download the application form and submit along with any supporting materials via email to Giving@CoreCivic.com or mail to:
