WLS Spencer Foundation

Mission Statement

The mission of the WLS Spencer Foundation is to fund activities that foster new ideas, encourage creativity, and disrupt the status quo in the fields of education, the arts, and environmental sustainability. We like the leverage that arises from seed grants, challenge grants, and matching grants.

Program Areas

K-12 EDUCATION: programs that encourage students to stay in school, graduate high school, and pursue a higher education

EDUCATION THROUGH THE ARTS: public arts programs centered on art-making and production as well as programs that foster cross-cultural dialogue.

ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION: We fund programs and activities that bring diverse communities together in order to preserve and protect natural resources.
