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 well thought out plans for sustainability and
growth. Passsion with practicality fuels success. In light
of this, we are prepared to fund planning grants, when needed.

We are, in general, 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.
