Grants are generally made to organizations that encourage or otherwise assist individuals to achieve their greatest potential and become full and active members of society. Thus, grants have been made in the past to: provide physical therapy and mobility training for blind children between kindergarten and second grade levels; provide job training for teens and young adults; fund after-school programs for children in transition from homeless shelters; fund a Veterans center at a local community college to encourage veterans to seek and continue higher education and job training; fund assistance programs for group counseling, financial literacy and employment development workshops for Veterans and their families; fund tutorial programs and music education programs for underprivileged children; fund seminars at high schools in depressed areas to assist students in seeking student aid and applying for higher education; and funding programs which assist the homeless and others in need to transition to regular employment and permanent residence. In addition, grants have been made to charitable organizations in economically depressed areas for job-creation activities. Foreign grants have also been made on a limited basis to fund therapeutic-play areas in 20 orphanages in Central America; strengthen the network of NGOs fighting gender inequality and sex-trafficking in India; and build a school and community center for an earthquake-damaged village in Nepal.
