The Shumaker Family Foundation
The Foundation supports endeavors in education, social justice, and environmental justice, and through these aims to create a more compassionate world where each person has opportunity to fully reach his or her potential. Social justice grants emphasize domestic violence prevention and the development of leadership among people from disadvantaged groups. Education grants favor projects that show the fascination and potentiality of math, physical science, engineering, and the arts to children who otherwise might not receive such exposure. Under the education category, the Foundation also funds projects that address the education of children 0-3 years of age and projects that strengthen the education process. Environmental justice grants support projects that promote animal welfare and environmental sustainability. Priority is given to innovative projects led by people and organizations with a history of successful innovation; projects that connect two or more of the funding areas; and projects that can demonstrate significant outcomes within three years. The Foundation only funds social justice and education programs in the Greater Kansas City Region; environmental justice grants are awarded to projects conducted by organizations based win the United States and with national or local scope.
