We are a small private foundation whose mission is to empower women to be a positive force in shaping their families, communities and environment.

Our vision is to think globally and leverage our resources to catalyze innovative efforts where small grants can make a difference.

We are grateful to a family member whose generosity allowed us to commence the Foundation in 2006, and we revere that memory by honoring his love of dixieland jazz.
