Grants Made – Fiscal Year 2017-2018


The Board of Directors decided that there would be a focus, “ABUSE, NEGLECT, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE,” for the Foundation’s 2017-18 grantmaking cycle.  Non-profit agencies, whose primary focus is addressing the issues of abuse or neglect or domestic violence, were invited to apply for Core Operating Support funding or funding for an Existing Program or a New Program.  Other agencies were invited to apply for funding for an Existing Program or a New Program, which addressed the focus.


The Board of Directors awarded two Core Operating Support Grants, three Existing Program Grants and five New Program Grants.  The awardees and the funded programs appear below.



$25,500 was awarded to Mary Immaculate Hospital to support its Mission of “Being Good Help to Those in Need,” especially the poor on the Peninsula.

$140,250 was awarded to the Bernardine Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis (Bernardine Franciscan Sisters) to further its mission and ministries in the USA, Brazil, Africa and the Dominican Republic.
