The Foundation supports programs in education, social service, and health. Of particular interest are capital campaigns, bricks and mortar projects, endowments, collaborative projects, and contributions to matching grants. Education grants are earmarked for automation technology, programs in service learning, and creative programs that support persons leaving welfare, preparing students for work in nonprofits, tutoring at-risk youth, and revitalizing neighborhoods. Social services grants support welfare-to-work programs, creative approaches to working with at-risk youth, inadequate daycare systems, and economic development initiatives. Health grants are awarded to hospitals and health agencies. Specific institutions and programs, rather than national organizations are usually given priority. The Foundation awards grants to organizations in the South, Midwest, and Northeast regions. It typically does not fund west of the Rockies. It does not normally award grants in the following states: Arizona, Alaska, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, or Wyoming.
