Programs

Faith and a commitment to change

The Pulte Family Charitable Foundation provides financial support to charitable organizations primarily through two programs: Mission Giving and Legacy Giving.  The Mission Giving program supports eligible 501(c)3 organizations doing work aligned with the Foundation’s giving criteria.  The Legacy Giving program continues Bill Pulte’s legacy of generosity by allowing his family to direct giving to charitable causes.

At the beginning of 2020, no one could have anticipated the impact of COVID 19 on nearly all aspects of our lives.  Our grantees demonstrated the importance of flexibility and resilience.  Plans and budgets had to be adjusted.  New safety protocols were written and implemented.  The Foundation’s priorities shifted to address growing need for food, shelter and other basic necessities.  Many people found help and hope. We have been fortunate to partner with so many organizations working fervently to help their communities.  Over the course of 2020, the Pulte Family Charitable Foundation supported 132 organizations awarding $3,679,330 in total grants and donations.  This includes:

  • $3,275,000 for the Mission Giving Program
  • $87,000 for the Legacy Giving Program
  • $274,830 for the Scholarship Program
  • and $42,500 in other donations.
