Annotation: The Rosenberg Foundation's goal is to improve the quality of life for children, youth, and their families in California and, in particular, to address specific issues and problems in the four fields which are the foundation's priorities.
Abstract: These priorities are early childhood development, adolescent and older youth, rural development, and immigration policy. During 1979, the directors of the foundation approved 39 grants totaling $856,968. Over the past 5 years, the total amount granted and the size of the grants has increased each year. The average grant in 1979 was $21,974. In each of its priority fields, the foundation approved new grants and renewed current projects during 1979. Although the number of grants in each field is small, there are discernible trends in the types of issues addressed and program approaches used in each area. Early childhood accounted for 36.2 percent of grant funds in 1979, while older youth held 17.4 percent and rural youth had 18.3 percent of the funds. Other areas accounted for 19 percent of the funds. Projects supported in the early childhood field explore issues and problems such as discrimination in housing against children, unlicensed child care, lesbian child custody, and the relationship between imprisoned mothers and their children. In the adolescent and older youth field, seven of the projects are intended to empower young people and two are intended to improve youth-serving institutions. The rural development projects focus on alternative agricultural techniques available to new farmers, rural housing, rural health, rural community development, and rural land reform. Other projects receiving funding from the foundation include four statewide education policy projects and two immigration policy projects. Each grant is described. The report includes information on policies and procedures, a treasurer's report, financial reports, and other information. Tables are provided.
