Below are samples of the types of projects for which our Fund seeks to
award grants and which we can encourage groups to undertake. These
activities are all ones with which the trustees and officers have had
experience, and which they recognize as cost effective and meeting the
objectives of the fund. Estimates of cost are given. Links are also
provided to actual funded projects which exemplify the specific type of
activity.
