“Areas of Interest:
We accept proposals from nonprofit organizations for projects which meet one of the Foundation’s two basic purposes:
To contribute to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual welfare of children through the dissemination of knowledge about new and innovative organizations and/or their programs designed to benefit youth; and
To contribute to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual welfare of children through the dissemination of knowledge already possessed by well-established organizations, to the end that such information can be more adequately used by society.
Characteristics of Typical Grants
The Foundations grants are awarded for one year. All grants must be completed between the period of January 1 – December 31 of the award year.
Grants must have the potential of helping American children in a large geographic area (more than one state).
