Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, schools, hospitals, government agencies, religious institutions, and volunteer fire departments in eligible states for community benefit programs. Particular focus will be placed on the areas of education, literacy, and low-income initiatives and solutions. The Funding Source seeks to support initiatives that create and sustain thriving communities.

Geographic eligibility includes the communities where the funding source operates: Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, and Texas. See the links provided in Grant Coverage Areas below.

Focus Area Details:

Low-Income Initiatives and Solutions
The Foundation seeks programs that provide for innovative and measurable ways to positively impact families and their ability to support those most vulnerable, the children and the elderly. Such programs may include, but are not limited to:
- Sustaining families and self-sufficiency
- Technical assistance and training for nonprofits
- Housing
- Home-ownership preparation
- Energy management and awareness
- Innovative use and promotion of alternative sources of energy

Education and Literacy
When people are geared with knowledge, they become more effective within their communities. Educated, critically thinking citizens make the community as a whole more powerful. One of the key issues in combating poverty is eliminating illiteracy. Thriving communities depend on self-sufficient, productive citizens. The Foundation believes that an essential element to healthy, thriving communities is creating an environment where every individual has basic reading and writing skills.
