Purpose and Activities

The foundation's primary interest is to support organizations that serve disadvantaged children and youth in San Francisco, Marin and Napa counties. Within the field of youth development, the foundation focuses on educational and personal enrichment programs designed to open doors of opportunity for at risk youth in order to help them succeed in school and become productive, self-sufficient members of society. The foundation is particularly interested in agricultural/environmental education, vocational training, and programs that prevent substance abuse and teen violence. To a lesser degree, the foundation supports environmental organizations that focus on land preservation and sustainability, animal welfare and management, and pollution control. The foundation is interested in promoting green concepts that increase awareness of science-based solutions that help reduce consumption of finite resources. .
