Purpose and Activities

The foundation seeks inquiries from programs that improve and expand learning environments of children, especially for those from economically- and socially-disadvantaged families; provides needed financial support for existing, highly-successful, results-oriented programs; and actively promotes positive interactions between children, youth, and adults, through programs that actively involve parents and/or staff and embrace professional development and training for those that deal directly with children or create their learning environments.

Program Area(s)

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

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education Initiative

Grants, ranging from $10,000 to $20,000, will be made available to nonprofit/public school partnerships, or charter schools with 501(c)(3) status, that provide effective in-school or other enrichment programming in Los Angeles and/or Santa Clara counties that advances and supplements science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education and that is aligned with California Department of Education content standards. Proposals must offer a theory of change that is focused, and anticipates, understands, and overcomes obstacles to motivation and academic success for the population it serves. Priority will be given to programs that: offer an established program, with at least a track record for one academic year, with evaluation methods to measure effectiveness; address a combination of parent education/issue awareness, teacher education/support, and/or community collaboration and learning; utilize a comprehensive approach (multiple-touch/long-term) rather than limited touch activities (one assembly, one training, etc.); work with an involved board of directors and highly-qualified staff, with special consideration given to organizations whose strategic planning has been increased and updated for the current economic environment; and have organizational budgets of less than $10 million, or be part of a larger organization where the program budget is largely independent of other programs and is under $3 million.
