Grants of $20,000 to Gilroy, California nonprofits, schools and government agencies for industrial arts programs, including design, technical drawing, graphic technology, engineering studies, vocational programs, and film or movies. Preference is given to programs that provide services for which public funds are not available or not sufficient.

In reviewing grant applications, in addition to evaluating the potential impact of the requests, the Foundation gives careful consideration to:
1. Programs which would contribute to industrial arts.
2. The ability of the organization or program to become self-supporting after initial seed money or interim funding.
3. The extent of local volunteer involvement and support for the organization’s board.
4. The organization’s fiscal responsibility and management qualifications.

In authorizing grants, the Foundation gives preference to projects of the following types, whether undertaken by existing agencies or by new agencies:
1. Projects or programs aimed at providing needed facilities or services, for which public funds are either not available or not sufficient and the Foundation’s contribution, either by itself or in conjunction with other private support, would have a significant impact.
2. Projects that will provide leverage in an agency’s ability to secure other funds.
3. Projects that, in responding to known community needs, are designed to coordinate or consolidate community services in an effort to reduce overhead expenses, increase efficiency or eliminate unnecessary duplication.
