The Foundation’s limited resources are directed primarily to high-quality small and medium-sized organizations (annual budgets of $1.5 million or less) whose priorities and ongoing commitment are to long-term arts and environmental education programs serving children and youth in the Philadelphia area's most disadvantaged neighborhoods.
The Foundation does not support pilot/demonstration projects or new initiatives that do not have sufficient committed funding to be sustained over time.
