We believe that the world is changed by passionate people who are willing to take risks and whose voices need to be heard. It is best, however, when their good ideas are coupled with a well thought out business plan. Passion with practicality fuels success. In light of this, we are prepared to fund planning grants when needed.

We are more interested in grass roots efforts than national campaigns.

Site visits are a key component of grantmaking. We get to know the people behind the proposal. At their best, site visits optimize successful collaboration between grantees and grantmaker.
