"Rebellious teens in East San Jose apologize to parents, promise to seek respect and stay in school," at California Community Partners for Youth.

Our foundation honors Frieda C. Fox, an accomplished teacher, artist, and musician who was the first in her family to attend college in the 1920's. Throughout her life, she inspired a love of learning, self-expression, and compassion within her family and community. Through this foundation, four generations of her family hope to do the same.

Since 2003, the foundation has provided over $4 million in grants via requests for proposals, to support educational programming in Santa Clara and Los Angeles counties, and many thousands of hours of pro-bono consulting and project-based technical assistance to grant recipients. In 2013, the foundation made the strategic decision to temporarily suspend accepting unsolicited proposals in order to focus our limited resources on two major initiatives, Youth Philanthropy Connect and Education by Nature.

On October 1, 2013, Education by Nature transitions from a program of the foundation to administered by a valued grantee, The Children's Nature Institute, in Los Angeles.

The foundation continues to fund The Children's Nature Institute, The Environmental Volunteers, The CREEC Network of the California Department of Education's STEM Office, and several additional implementations of this innovative and successful collaborative model. This ten year mark also brings the departure of the foundation's founding executive director and Education by Nature creator. Funding through early 2014 is currently fully commited to Youth Philanthropy Connect, Education by Nature, and mission related investing.
