Collaborative Grantmaking

We believe that access to the arts, abundant educational opportunities and quality healthcare options help to create a vibrant and thriving economic ecosystem. We identify organizations to implement projects in the sectors of the arts, education and healthcare, that are innovative, have a measurable impact and drive economic excellence.

Grantee Criteria

Our unique approach to grantmaking means nearly all of the organizations we fund are identified and contacted by the Foundation staff. We invest in the following criteria:

The People

We look for strong leaders and passionate people who truly believe in the mission.

The Idea

We search for bold ideas that are relevant, sustainable, replicable and innovative.

The Impact

Projects must demonstrate they are aiming for significant and long-lasting impact.

Checking In

As a grantee, you are our partner and our goal is to make the process smooth and simple. We want to hear about your progress, challenges, what success looks like to you and how we can help you achieve it.

Our Promise

For us, collaboration is key and our support does not end at funding. We make the granting process a joint effort between our foundation and our partners, getting involved how and when you need us.
