Purpose and Activities

Since its inception, the trust has confined its grants to a small group of institutions to achieve maximum philanthropic effect. Every five years it reviews its focus and may choose new fields of interest. Two new fields of interest that have been added to the foundation's focus are the prevention and treatment of teenage obesity, and research in aging. Because its grant criteria are extremely narrow, all grantees are selected by invitation only after research by the trustees.
