Grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 to California nonprofits and schools that address the needs of at-risk children and young adults in the Sacramento and Central Valley. Funded programs should specifically address the areas of literacy and transition-age foster youth. Priorities for these two areas are outlined below.

1. Literacy: Programs that help children and young people learn to read, improve their reading comprehension, and improve their school performance.
2. Transition-Age Foster Youth: Programs that provide bridge services, assistance, and opportunities for young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who are, or have been, in foster care.
