The Foundation is dedicated to furthering the public welfare within the limits of nature. It focuses its grantmaking on three areas: arts and culture, human rights, and food and farming. Arts and culture grants seek to provide artists from diverse cultures opportunities for the creation, development, performance, or exhibition in the performing or visual arts. Also of interest are projects that engage new audiences and those that increase access to the arts for, and participation in the arts by, underserved communities. Human rights grants support organizations working to protect basic human rights, including economic, social, cultural, civil, and political freedom. Food and farming grants support organizations working to increase sustainable, organic farming and regional “foodsheds” for cities and towns. The Foundation considers letters of inquiry for arts and culture programs in the San Francisco Bay area with priority given to San Francisco-based organizations and in the United Kingdom, with priority given to London-based organizations. Grants for human rights programs and food and farming programs are awarded to organizations in the San Francisco Bay area and Northern California for local projects, and California for statewide projects. Additional information is available on the Web site. The deadline is for food and farming grants.
