Purpose and Activities

The foundation exists to promote social justice, environmental justice, and education. Within social justice, the foundation emphasizes domestic violence prevention and the development of leadership among inner-city youth. Within environmental justice, the foundation supports projects that promote animal rights, animal welfare, and that address global warming. Within education, the foundation favors projects that show the fascination and potentiality of math, physical science, engineering, and the arts to children who otherwise might not receive such exposure. The foundation also funds projects that address the education of children 0–3 years of age. The foundation prefers innovative projects led by people and organizations with a history of successful innovation; projects that connect 2 or more of foundation funding areas; and projects that can demonstrate significant outcomes within 3 years .
