Large grants for non-profit organizations that focus on animal welfare, children and youth, education, health, relief, and special needs. The purpose of this funding is to support soundly conceived and operated non-profit organizations in the aforementioned areas. The Foundation is offering this grant with several areas of interest:

ANIMAL WELFARE: The Foundation will support the training of guide dogs for the visually impaired; and for training of dogs to be companions for the physically challenged or for mobility restricted seniors.

CHILDREN AND YOUTH: This category is for projects submitted by BSA, GSA, Boys and Girls Clubs and Teen Challenge type organizations that are related to their mission or for improvement to their facilities and equipment, such as games, computers and renovations.

EDUCATION: The Foundation supports institutions of higher learning and special projects related to education. Examples of projects in this category are: the renovation of classrooms, digital language labs, educational equipment such as computers, desks and books, complying with requirements for the handicapped on older buildings, and purchasing specialized equipment for teaching hospitals. Additionally, the Foundation supports non-traditional providers of education for at-risk kids and after-school mentoring programs.

HEALTH: The Foundation supports a great variety of projects related to health issues, for example: lab supplies for teaching hospitals, multi-drug resistance research, medical related equipment, renovating areas of hospitals for specialized treatment, and sending kids with cancer to camp.

RELIEF AND SOCIAL: This is the category where the Foundation places qualifying projects that do not fit into the other categories. The Foundation continues to support community outreach programs, shelters for the homeless, shelters for abused women and children, veteran-related projects, services to seniors, purchase of vans for various transportation needs, and transitional living programs.

SPECIAL NEEDS: Many projects fit this broad category. The Foundation has sent disabled kids to camp, made playgrounds handicap accessible and friendly, and purchased specialized equipment for licensed care facilities for the disabled and mentally retarded.
