The Foundation makes grants in two programs – human services and the environment – and one special interests category. Human services grants seek to assist women, primarily regarding their physical, mental, and financial health. Grants are made to programs that support activities that deal with the issues of homelessness, substance abuse, domestic violence, and vocational training. Applicants in Los Angeles and Orange County in California are invited to apply. The environmental program concentrates on activities that promote the conservation of biological diversity and those that advance sustainable ecosystem management. Primary emphasis is on marine resources conservation. In this category, grants are awarded to programs addressing issues in western North America, Chile, and the western Pacific. Environmental grants are also awarded to support the search for solutions to health threats caused by toxic chemicals. Proposals for special interests grants are by invitation only. The Foundation awards funds on a quarterly basis. Annual deadlines are January 15, April 15, July 15, and October 15. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
