Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for: 1) Conservation, particularly the protection of the world’s oceans and species. The foundation is interested in site-specific projects designed to improve the health of ocean habitats and to enhance their ability to withstand the challenges of climate change. The foundation also supports efforts to fund species protection, particularly regarding the seas’ apex predators. Eligible projects include research, conservation and/or restoration. Grants for other types of water-related conservation efforts may be considered on a limited basis; 2) Performing Arts, primarily classical music and theater; and 3) Social Causes, particularly to support efforts that address the root causes of poverty and inequality, particularly in urban areas. Priority will be given to programs that emphasize evidence-based early intervention and prevention approaches. The foundation seeks to support efforts designed to help alter the life trajectories of socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals and families. Specific areas of interest include early childhood education, teenage pregnancy prevention, school completion for at-risk youth, workforce preparedness, and African-American male achievement. Although not limited exclusively to Chicago, grant making in Social Causes will focus on the Chicago area .
