The Trust seeks to foster healthy development and future independence by increasing opportunities for children and youth up to age 25. Organizations should strive to achieve a long-term, sustainable difference in the lives of the people they serve, offering a comprehensive set of services designed to break the cycle of poverty rather than simply providing a service to meet immediate needs.

Programs of greatest interest offer direct services to disadvantaged children and youth, such as:

  • Academic enrichment and support
  • College access and tuition assistance
  • Mentoring and youth leadership
  • Arts outreach integrated with school curriculum
  • Career development and job skills training
  • Recreational activities and camps incorporating youth development objectives

If your organization and program are consistent with the guidelines submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) online at any time; selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
