Trustees' Philanthropy Fund

The Trustees oversee the direct grant making from a general fund, the Trustees' Philanthropy Fund (TPF). TPF funds are separate from donor contributions and are intended to engage the Board of Trustees and the organization in direct philanthropy.

Since its inception in 1991 through 2015 fiscal year-end, the TPF has granted over $18M to charitable organizations.

The TPF makes grants to build the capacity of strong nonprofits serving children and families or the philanthropic sector to better meet their missions. This last fiscal year, over $2M dollars of capacity-building grants were made in the areas shown below.
