Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but
a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Proverbs 13:12

Fostering Hope.  Empowering People.

The Speranza Foundation is dedicated to meeting the practical needs of artists and initiatives that are restoring and inspiring humanity.  We know that restoration and inspiration happens when the practical needs of those on the front lines of caring for our world are met.  We give to the pressing, basic and sometimes evolving needs of our grantees and facilitate meaningful connections in order to maximize the impact of our investment.   Learn more about our grants.

We believe that art and social impact initiatives play a unique and vital role in the health of humanity and we celebrate and initiate collaborations where the two can illuminate each other.

Founded in 2008, the Speranza Foundation continues the work and philosophy of it's founder, Kathy Treat, who has given over $6 Million in philanthropic contributions.
