Grants averaging $22,000 to USA nonprofit organizations for projects that raise national awareness of the need for economic education. Funding is intended for programs that engage youth and the general public in economic education or create a demand for greater economic literacy.

The Board of Trustees will give special attention to proposals and projects with national impact that addresses the following issues and audiences:

-The Foundation has an abiding interest in elevating the nation’s understanding of the need for economic education. It will support programs that raise various public’s participation in economic education and/or create a demand for greater economic literacy.

-The application of new strategies for teaching economics including on-line and web-based instruction is of interest to the Foundation.

-Projects, policy studies, or programs that encourage measurement of economic understanding more often and/or more effectively are of specific interest.

-The large number of students at risk of leaving school, and hence never effectively participating in the nation’s economic system are of concern to the Foundation. Programs that help otherwise disenfranchised youth and/or young adults with children learn to participate in the economic system are very important to the Foundation.

-Helping those working in social service agencies, particularly social workers, provide financial and economic understanding is a focus of the Foundation's funding.
