Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for 1) education, particularly to prepare children for success in school, as well as to support school readiness, quality early childhood development and early intervention, and working with families and youth service organizations to insure academic success and prevent school dropout; and 2) community health and services, particularly to promote healthy behavior, wellness, and prevention; and to improve access to health care for vulnerable populations, and provide opportunities for families that encourage healthy lifestyles and improved mental and physical health. The foundation also has secondary focus areas in: basic services for at-risk families and children, family literacy and adult education, community improvement and nonprofit capacity building, culture and increasing accessibility to the arts, and philanthropy and volunteerism. The foundation considers programs that have matching or other funds from government, other foundations, corporate or private funding. Organizations and programs that show collaboration and sharing of ideas and resources are strongly encouraged.
