Our mission is to help those most in need who are less able to help themselves. We are less concerned with making many grants than with making grants in response to the greatest need at any given time.
Primary Geographic Scope and Areas of Interest
Presently, the Anna May Family Foundation will make grants benefiting residents of Jackson County and targeting:
- those who are subjects of abuse;
- children who are at risk, emphasizing preschool education and recreational and cultural enrichment for youth;
- those needing emergency services, emphasizing shelter, food and medications;
- those who are economically disadvantaged and who are seeking employment and training
- No grants will be made to individuals or to other foundations.
- Grants for buildings, equipment and endowments will not be emphasized at this time.
- The foundation does not make grants to support projects which have already been completed or grants for general operations.
