5) Measurable: Organizations that are results-oriented with specific achievable objectives and action plans.

Grant Categories:

1) Arts & Culture - Grants foster the creation and sharing of new art as well as the preservation of traditional art forms.

2) Education - Grantmaking focus on specific training programs or schools which enrich and empower individuals along with their community, and provide for improved quality of life and greater capacity toward ongoing life-learning.

3) Environment - Support for natural resource management and strategies that balance conservation and sustainability. Grantmaking focus is on restoration, preservation, and sustenance in alternative energies, clean water, clean air, natural habitats, and green spaces.

4) Health & Wellness - Organizations who focus on prevention and elimination of disease and illness; that are dedicated to the holistic wellness of the communities they serve; that proactively seek to overcome physical, social, and emotional disorders which encumber society; and that provide superb care throughout.

5) Human Services - Programs and projects that are dedicated to improving essential human life needs, specifically for those who are least able to help themselves, who need protection and provision beyond their current capacity.

6) Human Rights - Support for advocacy, protection efforts, and educational opportunities which focus on the full range of human rights nationally and abroad. Support organizations which address the most vulnerable issues in trafficking, torture, gender-based violence, asylum, and immigration. Grantmaking focus is on economic, cultural, and social issues, as well as civil and political rights.

7) Hunger & Shelter - Support for programs that provide solutions to the eradication of hunger and homelessness; that focus on sustainability of access to food, shelter, clothing, and medical supplies. Priority is given to projects that meet the most basic needs of those with the fewest resources.
