The Foundation has supported numerous charitable causes over the years, from supporting educational institutions to social services for the homeless, low-income housing, and religious, public, and private school education.

The Foundation only accepts requests from organizations that are exempt from filing federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code that are also considered public charities under Sections 509(a)(1), 509(a)(2) and 170(b)(1)(A) of that code.

In addition, the Foundation does not fund sponsorships or fund-raising events such as dinners, walk-a-thons, tournaments, fashion shows, etc., or lobbying and attempts to influence legislation.

Applications and proposals are encouraged throughout the year. However, due to the high submission of requests on or near the deadline day, only those requests received via online by Friday August 4, 2017 will be reviewed for completeness prior to the actual deadline date.
