What We Do

We award grants to organizations that are within our geographic focus and areas of interest. Organizations must be tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code and cannot be classified as private foundations under Section 509(a) of the Code. In select cases, we may consider support for special projects sponsored by governmental entities.

We do not award grants to individuals; debt reduction drives; or for lobbying activities as defined by the Internal Revenue Service.
