The foundation supports innovative local programs and initiatives that affect education, community and economic development, arts and culture, diversity, and the environment. In education, the foundation seeks to provide economically disadvantaged students with greater access to programs that promote proficiency in core academic skills, particularly science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. This includes programming that helps them effectively prepare to compete in the workforce, and have greater choices regarding the routes available to actively support themselves and make positive social and economic contributions to their communities. Examples include: technical and literacy training, computer and science camps, writing competitions, and career planning and preparation.
Eligible Organizations: Nonprofit organizations located in southwestern Pennsylvania, West Virginia, eastern Kentucky, and parts of Ohio, Texas, and Virginia, are eligible to apply.
