Developed strategically and proactively, these initiatives are the key driving forces for the Foundation to achieve its mission and they are consistent with the Foundation's five focus areas.
Below you will see the major initiatives approved by the board of directors in 2012. Most of the grants are multi-year initiatives commencing in 2012, with funds distributed throughout the grant's duration.
