W.l.s. Spencer Foundation
DescriptionThe Foundationís mission is to fund activities anywhere in the world that foster new and innovative ideas in education. Of particular interest are those that encourage creativity and risk taking. Grants are awarded in two areas: arts and education. Arts grants fund educational activities, publications, and outreach associated with innovative art and/or contemporary art exhibitions, especially those focusing on contemporary Asian art. The Foundation is interested in projects that encourage knowledge about art and culture, foster international understanding, and are supported by academic scholarship. Education grants fund programs that are innovative and that motivate children to stay in school, do well academically, and continue their education beyond high school to college or other higher education opportunities. Priority is given to those programs that are national or regional in nature, but which have a chapter in San Francisco. Letters of inquiry are reviewed on a rolling basis. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
