Research Briefs

Each grant application pertains to at least one of our charitable areas. Based upon our Roundtable Discussions we know that each area, whether social services, the arts, or the environment, is complex. In order to understand and appreciate the significance of the request, we prepare a Research Brief on the area addressed by the proposal. The Research Brief allows staff and Distribution Committee members to understand the grant request within a context that focuses on local statistics and information as well as national trends.
