• Grants

    With a longstanding commitment to helping children build bright futures, the Foundation today has two distinct grantmaking focus areas: childhood bereavement and educational enhancement for middle schoolers. Our employees and agents actively support both of these focus areas through robust, sustained engagement programs. We are highly dedicated to engaging with the communities where we live and work - often in direct alignment with our grantmaking focus areas.

Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations with tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3)of the IRS. Private foundations, individuals, and government agencies are not eligible to receive grants from the Foundation. Applications are accepted by invitation only.

Childhood bereavement
We help raise awareness around the importance of supporting children and families who have experienced the death of a close loved one.

Educational enhancement
We help build academic foundations for middle schoolers during the critical out-of-school hours in order to prepare them for their transition to high school.
