Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for environmental projects and community improvements. Applicants must submit a Letter of Inquiry prior to applying. Funding is intended to enhance the quality of life in underserved communities and to protect and preserve the natural environment of those areas. Preference will be given to programs where these two interests intersect.

The financial support will be restricted to a specific existing or new project or initiative and can include research to support the program. Preference will be given to organizations that have a potential for expansion opportunities with data-driven results.

The Foundation's mission is to positively impact communities that lack access to economic and social opportunities and essential resources. The Foundation seeks to work toward resolving these inequalities by alleviating disparities in food access, affordable housing, high-quality education, physical and psychological healthcare, and/or criminal justice.

The Andrew Family Foundation intends to engage in long-term collaborations to affect measurable change. In addition to providing financial resources, they intend/expect to be actively involved in promoting the growth and expansion of the selected programs or organizations.
