Through the Foundation's grantmaking, the goal is to give those experiencing poverty access to services and opportunities that foster self-sufficiency and self-determination and transform that quality of their lives in a sustainable way.
Types of Requests Considered: Applications for the following categories of projects, programs, and services will generally be eligible for consideration for the Foundation. However, decisions regarding eligibility, approval, and the amount of the grant are at the sole discretion of the Foundation.
The Foundation will consider requests for equipment and furnishings and, to a limited extent, renovation projects.
