Purpose and Activities

The foundation promotes the well-being of children in need through the effective application of human and financial resources.

Program Area(s)

The grantmaker has identified the following area(s) of interest:

Education Programs

Primarily support for programs and projects benefiting K-12 schoolchildren and young adults. College entry and preparatory programs are also supported. Priority will be given to grants within the State of California and more specifically for grants in the greater Los Angeles area. Focus is on programs which address the educational needs of economically, socially and physically disadvantaged children. Programs and projects with the greatest potential to receive funding are those which address the core areas of reading, writing, mathematics, critical thinking, and problem solving. Of particular interest are programs supporting education in the physical and natural sciences, and programs which make innovative use of media and technology in the education of children.

Health and Social Services

Programs in this category should relieve suffering, improve living conditions, and provide tangible current benefits to children and their families. Support will focus on programs providing for economically, socially and physically disadvantaged children. Grant requests in this area should meet the following general guidelines: Grant requests providing services for children in the greater Los Angeles area are the most likely to be funded. However, grant requests outside this geographic area are considered, particularly for innovative programs or those with the potential for broad, far-reaching effects. Support will focus on programs which address current needs and achieve demonstrable results. Those programs whose results are tangible and measurable will have the greatest potential for funding.

Neighborhood and Community

Programs should support collaborative community efforts to improve the quality of life for children, youth and families in inner-city neighborhoods. Most likely to be funded are: 1) Comprehensive Neighborhood Redevelopment Projects -- collaborative projects which mobilize the community to improve itself; and 2) Parent Empowerment and Involvement Programs -- integrative programs which focus on parent education, community involvement and leadership training.

Partners for Healthy Kids

Partners for Healthy Kids (PHK) was started in 1994, and currently provides service year-round, when schools are in session. PHK is a community-based program that provides health services for underserved elementary school children and their younger siblings, at no charge, in a custom-built and equipped 36-foot mobile van. Services include diagnosis and treatment of minor acute pediatric conditions, immunizations, health education, screenings, and referrals to program-linked health and social service providers. The program's goal is to assist children to be healthy so they can be successful in their classrooms.

Program-Related Investment

The foundation has made a PRI in the form of a non-interest bearing loan for bridge financing with a maritime institute. Historically, the foundation has made a PRI to a charter school for the purchase of land for a new campus.
