Domestic Grants

While our primary initiative is building Hovde Houses around the world, we are also proud of our domestic giving. These lists indicate the recent grants we have made to various U.S.-based organizations that serve the poor, homeless, hungry, sick, and otherwise vulnerable people in our local community.
