Empowering grantee organizations through our support of education, youth development, human services, the arts, and environmental education.
We value both established and innovative approaches to identifying and meeting the needs of target communities.
We support efforts to address the challenges of today and to build sustainable tomorrows.
The Foundation has historically funded a variety of education programs serving children and adults.  We are currently focused on deepening our knowledge of the opportunities and obstacles facing at-risk children from birth through 3rd grade.
Youth Development  
The Foundation seeks to support the full development of youth by exposing them to new opportunities and experiences that expand their perspectives, engender compassion, promote confidence, and teach practical life skills while building character.
Human Services  
Through its support in human services, the Foundation seeks to strengthen families, provide compassionate care for those in crisis, and expand programs that deliver long-term, sustainable solutions.
The Foundation promotes access to the arts by supporting programs that offer active participation, foster creative partnerships, and engage a diverse community.  We also support arts education and scholarship programs for promising students.
Environmental Education
The Foundation seeks to protect the environment through its support of environmental education and programs that promote access to the outdoors.
