Our grants are focused in three areas: access to educational opportunities, support for disadvantaged young children, and enhancement of the quality of life for our senior population.
By supporting access to educational opportunities, our Trustees see

Student Assistance Fund program, although occasionally grants are
made outside of these programs.

educational focus by providing funds to schools and other programs
that seek to improve the quality of life for these children.
Our third area of funding is directed to our senior population, with
grants that support both basic needs and quality of life. Of
