The Foundation was the creation of Leonard I. Green, a pioneer in the development of the leveraged buyout industry. The Foundation has a primary focus on the arts, education, and human services in the Los Angeles area. Its mission is to uncover new opportunities, encourage growth and ultimately effect positive change in those institutions that best reflect the Foundationís core focus areas and the communities it serves. Education grants are awarded to programs and projects that strive to solve existing problems of juvenile delinquency, gang life, and drugs; work to expand educational programs for youth and/or adults; encourage the use of technology in youth and/or adult learning, and promote artistic endeavors including the visual and performing arts. Arts grants support arts programming in Los Angeles. The Foundation is dedicated to supporting institutions that focus on arts outreach and education. Priority is given to those institutions that promote the expansion of community arts programs and/or support youth and adult creativity. Human services grants focus on institutions that provide hope and support to those least able to help themselves as well as the general community; including children, adolescents, the elderly, the homeless, and families who struggle with domestic abuse.
