The Clarence E. Heller Charitable Foundation
The Foundationís mission is to protect and improve the quality of life through the support of programs in the environment, human health, education, and the arts. Priorities for the environment and health grants include promoting the long-term good health and viability of communities and regions. It seeks to support programs that prevent harm to human health from toxic substances and other environmental hazards; those that encourage planning and development at the regional level aimed at integrating economic and social goals with sound environmental policies as well as supporting initiatives for sustainability in agriculture and food systems. Music grants encourage the playing, enjoyment, and accessibility of symphonic and chamber music by providing scholarship and program assistance at selected community music centers, schools, and institutes. It also helps community-based ensembles of demonstrated quality implement artistic initiatives, diversify and increase audiences, and improve fund-raising capacity. Education grants provide environmental and arts education opportunities to children and youth. These grants support programs for educators and artists to improve and apply their teaching skills in these subjects as well as supporting efforts to advance environmental and arts education programs. The Foundation gives priority to proposals from California organizations. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
