What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

We are a grant-making organization only. We do not raise funds. We are a hands-on grantmaker in that we follow up closely with our grantees as well as provide extra support for our scholarship recipients.

Program 2

Medical Research

Our medical research program is centered on research being conducted in cardiology, lipids, and organ transplant. Preference is given to programs benefiting children.
 
Additionally, because we hope to advance these research areas in the early stages of life, we are looking to support a program that is trying to discover these problems at the genetic level so that potential problems can be caught very early in life and extinguished before they become problematic.

Program 3

Social Enhancement

We are passionate about supporting programs that make a profound difference in the lives of others, specifically the young and disadvantaged. Preference is given to organizations located in Washington that create community and enhance individual lives through art and creativity.
 
We see the arts as a tool for transformation; as a way to address social, educational, and economic development issues. The arts can reach underserved populations and at-risk youth. The arts engage, entertain, create a sense of 'place' and bring people together. Our goal is to ensure that the arts thrive in communities throughout the state.
