Photo Patch Foundation — General Support (2019)

Grant investigator: Chloe Cockburn

This page was reviewed but not written by the grant investigator. Photo Patch Foundation also reviewed this page prior to publication.


The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $10,000 to Photo Patch Foundation for general support. Photo Patch has a website and an app that allows kids with incarcerated parents to send letters and pictures to their parents in prison for free. This diminishes barriers, helps families remain in touch, and reduces the number of children who have not communicated with their parents in weeks, months, or sometimes years.

This discretionary grant follows our October 2018 support and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
