The Foundation's goals are two-fold:
Providing educational opportunity for very bright young children from disadvantaged backgrounds: The Foundation welcomes grant proposals from educational organizations working with exceptionally intelligent children from disadvantaged backgrounds who might be overlooked in conventional settings. Typical grants will be given for the purchase of educational equipment and materials.
Addressing urgent environmental and conservation issues: Throughout their lives the founders were contributors to various conservation efforts both regional and international. In recent years world-wide environmental problems have reached alarming proportions. The Foundation remains dedicated to assisting efforts to ameliorate deteriorating environmental conditions.
