1) Objective

The Lawrence Foundation is a private family foundation focused on making grants to support environmental, education, human services and other causes. Jeff Lawrence co-founded Trillium Digital Systems in 1988. Intel Corporation acquired Trillium in August 2000. Jeff Lawrence and Diane Troth (husband and wife), established the Lawrence Foundation in 2000 with some of the proceeds received from the acquisition by Intel. They fund multi-year programs and operating grants and have no geographic restrictions. To date they have funded organisations that address the following areas of interest: (1) environment (US headquartered organisations operating programs in the US or elsewhere in the world); (2) human services; and (3) disaster relief (US headquartered organisations responding to disasters in the US or elsewhere in the world on an occasional basis).

The foundation does not typically make grants for the following purposes. Requests to fund the following purposes are likely to be denied: (1) computers or software; (2) audio or video equipment; (3) designing and producing videos, kiosks or promotional material; (4) music programs or musical instruments; (5) gardening programs or equipment; (6) physical education programs or equipment; (7) recreational programs; (8) theatre arts or performance arts programs or equipment; (9) hospice or old age home programs; (10) churches, religious, charter or magnet schools; (11) political lobbying activities or other political purposes, voter registration.

2) Eligibility

The foundation makes grants to US based qualified charitable organisations. Non-profit organisations that qualify for public charity status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or public schools and libraries are eligible for contributions or grants.

3) Location

They work worldwide in low and middle income countries.

4) Budget

The Foundation assets are currently about $4,000,000. They receive over 1,000 grant requests per year, but only around 50 projects are funded every year. Grants range from $5,000-$10,000. Their annual funding volume is around $200,000.
