The Foundation does not make grants to individuals and rarely for endowments, building campaigns, direct services, deficit financing, or religious purposes. Grant funds may not be used to participate in or intervene in any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office or to conduct, directly or indirectly, any voter registration drive (within the meaning of Section 4945(d)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code). Grants are not made for debt reduction. Funding for conferences, publications and media is limited to projects directly related to priorities in the Foundation’s program areas.

Update on the Foundation’s Grantmaking…
