Due to the high volume of requests, please note: 

  • Only online applications are accepted

  • If your organization is approved, an email will be sent from the Foundation
  • While we would like to fund every request, the needs are often greater than our resources and we may not be able to respond to every request favorably

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Smart & Final Charitable Foundation will be slower to respond to requests submitted through We will be temporarily expanding our response time past 60 days and apologize for any inconvenience.
