Each QuadW board member participates in our discretionary grants program, which provides them the opportunity to support interests that are separate from the principal giving of the Foundation, but remain close to the spirit of the mission. Each year, a $1,000 grant per board member fosters individual growth in philanthropy, creates new program areas and focuses on positive community outreach.
THE PAJAMA PROGRAM
The Pajama Program in New York provides new books and pajamas to children in need – living in shelters and often waiting to be adopted. Lauren volunteers with the program and has directed her QuadW discretionary grant to the organization.
Eagle Mount Bozeman
Eagle Mount Bozeman is an adventure camp for children and adolescents with cancer. Willie and Johnny's good friend, Jennifer Free Waters, is a camp director. To celebrate friendship and support the kinds of activities Willie enjoyed when he was in treatment, Johnny sent his discretionary grant to Eagle Mount.
