100% of the Melville Charitable Trust’s grantmaking is focused on ending homelessness, both in its home state of Connecticut and in supporting better practice and policy at the national level. The majority of its funding is made to organizations independently identified by Trust staff, who are actively engaged with and learning from practitioners, researchers, government agencies, funder colleagues and those who have experienced homelessness first hand. the Trust values the knowledge and insights of grantee partners, many of whom are leaders in the field, and rely on them for counsel. In order to learn about new work and broaden its knowledge, the Trust has an open inquiry process and accept unsolicited requests.
