About us

A history of commitment and innovation
A tradition of impact

Since its founding in 1923, Amalgamated Bank has grown and evolved to become a national leader in ethical banking with products and services that enable individuals, nonprofits, foundations, and socially responsible businesses to align their finances with their values. The Amalgamated Foundation builds on this history with a giving platform that is powered by both the financial acumen and committed vision of the bank.

Advance Change Funds

Advance Change Funds enable individuals and institutions to focus on the impact and vision of their philanthropy, leaving the financial, administrative and regulatory details to us. Advance Change Funds include donor advised funds for individuals and institutions, as well as collective giving vehicles to support programs that galvanize the support from multiple funders.

Once the Foundation receives a contribution, fund advisors can choose from a variety of investment approaches, including fossil-free options.  Then, with access to our open source database of leading social change nonprofits, fund advisors recommend grants and the Foundation manages the due diligence and other details to make grants nimbly and efficiently.

Information for grant seekers

The Amalgamated Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals, with the exception of when one of our funds has an open call for letters or interest or proposals.  Those opportunities will be featured on our blog.
