Grants ranging from $10,000 to $49,000 to Northern California or Hawaii nonprofit organizations for programs and projects in the fields of conservation, education, and healthcare. The Foundation has a special interest in funding projects that focus on seniors, women, and families. The Foundation does fund capital projects with an added preference for projects that will be completed with its contribution.

Funding is intended to focus on the following three areas:

The Foundation seeks to conserve the natural environment of Northern California and Hawaii by supporting efforts in the areas of habitat preservation, access to public lands, environmental education, and scientific research. The Foundation supports projects that have realistic goals and benefits, and that are responsive to the needs of the local economy and community.

The foundation seeks to enhance education in the communities of Northern California and Hawaii by supporting projects in the areas of core curriculum enrichment, innovation in teaching, career cultivation, and educational services for students with special learning needs.

The foundation seeks to improve the health and well-being of the residents of Northern California and Hawaii. It aims to make a difference by providing financial support to organizations which: provide needed health support services, advance patient care, and medical treatment through research and innovation, and improve the quality of life of those afflicted by life-limiting disease or conditions.

$10,000 - $49,000
