The Foundation will focus on early and preparatory education, essential to enabling students to succeed in school and continue their education as long and as far as each may choose to go.

We will concentrate our core educational grants on pre-school through high school, supporting those institutions that serve economically disadvantaged children, as well as those adversely impacted by physical, mental and emotional challenges. Every child deserves a chance at personal fulfillment and, if our resources can at least partially level the playing field, we intend to do so.

Our grants can be provided to the schools through independent but related educational foundations, as well as other non-profits that focus on students, teacher training and professional advancement, innovative learning strategies, equipment and supplies, and other unmet needs that are deemed critical to carry out these goals. This includes emphasis on key educational tools, such as achieving grade proficiency in literacy and mathematics.

While we will not provide direct scholarships to students, we will work with other public charities that will do so on our behalf.


The Foundation will focus on life threatening and long term or permanent physical, developmental, learning or emotional disabilities affecting children and young adults through the age of 25. This will include;

  • Investing in cutting edge medical research, from basic to translational, that holds promise for better identification, isolation, prevention, remediation, or mitigation of the causes and effects of these medically related challenges.
  • We will consider support for potential innovations in medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and clinical care. We are not prepared to provide long term sustaining funds, but we are prepared for long term research, bridge funding, and clinical trials that are necessary for the breakthroughs that we seek.
  • We will also consider supporting the professional advancement of the most talented and committed young scientists and physicians, without whom such future breakthroughs will not be possible.


In further support of our mission to enhance the well-being of children, we are interested in innovative strategies that will further the interests, talents and skills of children and young adults up to age 25 to become independent, productive and self-sufficient adults. This could include workforce development, life skill training, mentoring and coaching. Examples include;

  • Social ventures operated by public charities in direct support of their primary mission;
  • Support of organizations whose direct mission is to create employment opportunities for disadvantaged children and young adults.
