The Foundation’s grant program will, for the foreseeable future, continue to fulfil the wishes and long-term commitments made by Betty.

The Trustees retain the discretion to expand the scope of support as new opportunities arise within the Foundation’s three key focus areas and in keeping with Betty’s wishes and intent.

Due to the size of the Foundation and limited resourcing, at present, all grant-making applications are by invitation only. No unsolicited requests will be accepted.
