What We Fund

How We Work

To bring about the kinds of changes that will help people live healthier and more productive lives, the Board of Directors listens and learns so they can identify pressing problems that require attention. They then weigh if they can make a meaningful difference.

The strategies have emerged through a process of identifying what they want to accomplish for people and where they can have the greatest impact.

They strive to make selective, high-quality evaluation an integral part of how the work of the Foundation is carried out.

Temporary Changes to Application Process

Due to physical distancing directives, our Board of Directors is currently not meeting to review applications for funding. Therefore, incoming grant requests are currently not being accepted.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected.

We trust you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.
