2017 Grants Awarded: Trustee Designated Grants

The W. Clement & Jessie V. Stone Foundation has a Trustee Designated Grants program which provides individual trustees with the opportunity to request a Foundation grant that is reflective of his or her own unique charitable interests. This comprises a small amount of the Foundation’s overall grantmaking budget, and these awards do not necessarily reflect the Foundation’s areas of focused grantmaking. The Foundation and its trustees neither solicit nor accept applications for trustee discretionary grants.
