Carrie Estelle Doheny Foundation
DescriptionThe Foundation was created with the intention of furthering the charitable causes that the founder, a devout Catholic, cared about most for generations to come. Grants are awarded in the following areas: education, medical, religion, health and welfare, and aid to those in need. Education funding includes support of inner city Catholic schools in Los Angeles and scholarship funds for Catholic high schools and universities. Medical funding is focused on two areas: research, especially at the Doheny Eye Institute, and care of the disadvantaged. Religious grants support the evangelization and mission-based work of the Roman Catholic community, as well as local faith-based organizations inspired and guided by similar gospel values. Health and welfare grants is directed to organizations who assist individuals to lead independent, satisfying lives. Specific areas of interest include programs serving the disabled, foster children, seniors, and pregnant women. Aid to Those in Need grants are awarded for programs targeting hunger and homelessness, those empowering and inspiring young people in underserved communities, and those that advance literacy and economic self-reliance.
