Programs: The fund is operated for general charitable and educational purposes. Within that broad purpose, the specific primary purpose of the fund is to provide financial assistance to organizations committed to the improvement of k-12th grade public school education with particular emphasis on underserved students and on programs which the trustees determine to promise the improvement of k-12 public education. The staff of the fund are responsible for due diligence, making grant recommendations, and monitoring grantee progress and performance both for organizations funded directly by the fund totaling $2 million as well as for related grant programs consistent with the mission of the fund totaling $25 million. The grant to tfa was treated as an out of corpus distribution. The fund received the money from another private foundation that recorded the grant as a qualifying distribution. This one event changed the 990-pf treatment of the grant. The activities of the fund didn't change.
