Catalyst Grants

These grants catalyze and provide support to promising nonprofits—new and established—that address chronic social issues with new and promising approaches. SCE does not accept applications for Catalyst Grants; rather, each year, SCE selects a group of organizations that inspire us.


SCE’s Catalyst Grants address entrenched societal challenges by funding organizations that approach them in new and promising ways. SCE proactively awards Catalyst Grants to projects, individuals, and organizations that drive social change while raising awareness about these important issues.

Catalyst Grantee Profiles

SCE’s Catalyst partners span locations and sectors and all have unique stories about how they approach their work, the social issues they strive to address, and what inspires them. Each month we feature a new profile on a Catalyst grantee. Check out this month’s interview or visit our Related News section for additional profiles.
