The foundation operates four grant cycles per year, one for each focus area: arts, education, food and housing.

The grants awards are for general operating and for projects, primarily to support direct services. Most grants will be for single-year support, but the foundation will consider multi-year support on a case by case basis. They will entertain proposals for capital support on a case-by-case basis.
