The Frost Foundation accepts applications for human service needs, environmental, and education programs. The Foundation encourages self-reliance, creativity, and ingenuity on the part of prospective recipients. Efforts are directed primarily to support exemplary organizations and programs that can generate positive change beyond traditional boundaries, to encourage creativity that recognizes emerging needs, and to assist innovation that addresses current urgent problems. The Foundation provides initial impetus to exemplary organizations and programs, to operating funds, to pioneering organizations and programs that other institutions might similarly use, and to programs that have potential for wider service or educational exposure than an individual community. The Foundation encourages collaborations, mergers, and the formation of alliances among agencies within the community to reduce duplication of effort and to promote a maximum effective use of funds.
