Education: Focus on Learning

Recognizing that the Foundation’s past investments in education have yielded some of its most rewarding results, Learning has become the cornerstone of its mission and a focus for philanthropic activities. 


The Foundation values Learning as a primary pathway to a better life for individuals, families and communities.  While academic institutions have been the principal beneficiaries of the Foundation’s support over the years, we know that opportunities for intellectual growth can also be found in many forms and settings, such as a community health clinic, a daycare center for elders, a museum, or a concert hall. 


Mindful that the aim of education is to impart not only facts but values as well, the Foundation welcomes grant proposals that include innovative ideas for teaching and learning.
