Mission

The AEC Trust is a private foundation established in 1980 as a philanthropic, grantmaking organization. It is governed by an Advisory Board that sets policy and is responsible for the review of grants. The foundation is unable to respond to telephone inquiries.

Funding Policies and Interests

Funding has traditionally focused on arts and culture; education; environment; and health and human services (especially those which target women's issues or people living with AIDS); but can include areas in which the Advisory Board has special knowledge and interest.
