Making Grants: It’s what we do at the Foundation. (Well, it is not the only thing that we do, but we do a lot of it!) At the core of our work, we make grants from funds entrusted to us by donors to fulfill charitable needs. Some grants have specific guidelines for funding. Others are open to a broad range of charitable options.
