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.

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.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
