Nonprofit Grants

Through the State Street Foundation, State Street’s charitable arm, we make grants to nonprofits and nongovernmental organizations in 26 countries. The Foundation’s primary strategic focus is education and workforce development.

We believe the most effective way to improve the overall well-being of our communities is to help disadvantaged individuals earn and make a living. By keeping a sharp focus on education and work, we’ll bring lasting economic benefits to the communities where we live and work.

Since 2010, the Foundation’s Impact Framework has guided our investing in high-performing nonprofits that are providing measurable results in the following categories:

  • Education
  • Job-readiness
  • College success
  • Credentials
  • Work experience
  • Employment


Our funding strategy serves disadvantaged populations and aligns with State Street’s talent and diversity goals.
