The Foundation was established in 1986 and makes grants in two program areas and one special interest category. Grants are made in human services and the environment. Human services grants assist women with an emphasis on 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. Geographic focus is on Los Angeles and Orange counties in California. The Environmental Program concentrates on activities that promote the conservation of biological diversity and advance sustainable ecosystem management. The Foundation prioritizes its grantmaking on marine resources conservation with a geographic focus on western North America, Chile, and the western Pacific. The Environmental Program also supports the search for solutions to health threats caused by toxic chemicals. Special interests grants are by invitation only.
