Grant awards are based on four key priority areas which include improvement in healthy behaviors through schools.
Since 2004, more than $12 million has been awarded to the public and private schools within the Foundation’s service area.

By doing so, we are creating a more dynamic and more vibrant community in which to live now... and into the future.
