The Foundation makes investments in the form of grants, fellowships, human capital (in-kind professional service volunteers) and scholarships in six core areas. The areas are Advocacy, Education and Youth Development, Community Development and Empowerment, Economic Advancement, Health and Wellness, and International Aid and Relief.
