- Community science, health, and environmental programs

To further the goals enumerated, the Foundation does not intend support of other endowments, government entities, individuals (except scholarships), or organizations which can be inherently self-supporting through their commercial activities. The Foundation will not become aligned with any political or religious organization except in the support of nonpartisan or nondenominational programs that exist for the betterment of the community
