 The sponsor supports projects primarily in three areas of

 Music--The sponsor seeks to foster the expansion of musical ideas
by supporting new projects which promote original programming and 

 Education--The sponsor seeks to promote living environments in
which learning is a natural activity and a habit, rather than a
periodic task. The Foundation values critical and investigative
thinking, and supports projects which address class disparities in
educational access. 

 Grassroots Organizing--The sponsor encourages individuals and
grassroots groups to develop and enact activist strategies for
addressing institutional injustices, and for envisioning and building
a reasoned, just society. 

 Grants are available to 501c-3 organizations, projects with 501C-3
sponsoring organizations and individuals working on new, non-profit
projects.  Currently, grants are open to people and organizations
everywhere. There are no requirements of citizenship, and no
geographical limitations. 

 The sponsor makes grants only for seed money, or to launch new
ideas within existing projects. (cmb)
