Connecting People Who Care with Causes that Matter

Make A Difference Fund

Established by the Foundation to provide grants to local organizations that provide services and programs to children of low-income, disadvantaged or distressed families. It is a fund, like all of our funds, to which anyone may donate. The needs are endless and your generosity is appreciated.


The 2018 Make a Difference Grants will have a focus on science and technology.
