Animal-Related
We fund animal-related programs that focus primarily on the protection of animals and animal rights. Mr. Miossi loved dogs, so the Miossi Charitable Trust has a particular interest in programs that promote the protection of and rights of dogs.

Education
We fund education programming for all ages, with a particular focus on programs that promote college readiness and access for residents of San Luis Obispo. In addition, we support agricultural and environmental education of the surrounding area.

We support programs and improvements for staff and parishioners of Mission San Luis Obispo and other historic missions within San Luis Obispo County. We will also consider requests to fund capital improvements.

Fine Arts
We fund public art projects for the enjoyment of the community of San Luis Obispo and special projects by non-profit art organizations.
