This Foundation provides the following services, on an annual recurring basis, chiefly to its grantee organizations, but, in certain situations, we may provide all or some of these services to other organizations on a one-time basis.


As a result of an ongoing review of input from each grantee organization, we provide annual monetary grants, generally increasing in amount each year, to each organization that has satisfied our criteria for merit of its service to the community, transparent accountability, and other criteria published on this web-site.   It is anticipated that as the years go on, each grant will continue to exceed the prior year's grant.  Our Founder, Michael Wein, has stipulated in his will that, unless he is a victim of an unnatural death, a sizable portion (calculated at a minimum of us$2,500,000) of his estate is to go to this Foundation as its permanent endowment.  Therefore, it is anticipated that, if the grantee organization continues to meet  our criteria, upon the death of our Founder, the successor Trustees will increase the current grants to considerably greater amounts.
