The Foundationís primary purpose is to provide opportunities for at-risk and disadvantaged individuals in the Bay Area to improve the quality of their lives and reach their highest potential. The Foundationís small grants program supports organizations that have a one-time emergency need or that propose to pilot a new program. Preference is given to programs or projects that support disadvantaged youth with the following services: academic enrichment, cultural enrichment, environmental education, and vocational development. High priority will be given to organizations that promote college access and encourage community service for low-income youth. Grants in the arts are made to groups that predominantly serve youth. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking on organizations serving the residents of San Francisco, Marin, San Mateo, and Sonoma counties and to a limited extent Santa Clara County as far south as Palo Alto. Letters of intent are accepted. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
