Purpose and Activities

The foundation has adopted new, more narrowly defined guidelines centered on the children and youth of Lower Montgomery County, PA, and the nearby surrounding communities. Giving primarily to organizations that: 1) provide for the physical and emotional well-being of children and young people; 2) seek to enable young people, particularly the needy, to reach their fullest potential through education, empowerment, and exposure to the arts; and 3) are smaller organizations, with budgets under $1 million per year.
