Purpose and Activities

The foundation's funding priorities include: 1) Education, particularly programs that are targeted to older teens, young adults and low income citizens, as well as programs designed to improve access to learning opportunities for older youth and young adults, employ alternative education models, drop-out prevention efforts and work-force development strategies; 2) Community Development, particularly programs that promote safe neighborhoods and violence prevention, affordable housing and revitalized neighborhoods, and create opportunities for increased civic engagement; 3) Conservation and Environment, particularly programs that increase environmental awareness and educational outreach to underserved children and their families; 4) Social Services/Welfare, particularly programs that provide critical basic human needs to high-risk, vulnerable families and citizens; and 5) Arts & Culture: funding for these programs is limited to smaller community-based programs or agencies that seek to increase access and participation in visual and performing arts experiences for underserved children and their families. Smaller, community-based organizations that may be perceived as higher-risk and who do not have broad community support are also encouraged to apply.


Established in 1981 in VA - In 1981, the foundation was established by Andrew J. Asch, Jr., a Richmond, VA business executive and philanthropist. Mr. Asch had a strong personal interest in his community in the fields of education, social services and welfare, historic preservation, culture and the arts, the environment, and public policy. His commitment to supporting creative programming which responds to those issues is the basis for rewarding grants
