An opportunity to grant bright futures
The BBVA Compass Foundation demonstrates our support to the communities where we have a presence. The Foundation provides charitable grants to qualified nonprofit organizations – a long and proud tradition of the many banks that came together to create the company we are today.
Each community has unique needs and opportunities. We designate the majority of our community giving dollars to addressing these needs. Charitable grants are considered for organizations that meet the criteria described below. At the bottom of this section, you will find information about semi-monthly calls held for nonprofits interested in requesting support from the BBVA Compass Foundation, along with links to begin the application process.

In 2018, the Foundation will change its funding cycle to have two application periods. The first is scheduled to begin in February, and will focus solely on Community Development applications. All interested nonprofits must attend an educational webinar prior to submitting an application. The webinar will review the giving priorities and outline the steps to apply for funding.
Registration for the webinars will open in mid-January. Please revisit this site at that time to register.
Nonprofits with missions centered around any of the remaining five focus areas, should revisit this site in May to register for an education webinar.
