The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is concerned with the application of knowledge to solving the problems of people. It pursues this objective by making grants for charitable purposes and activities.
Such problems are numerous and complex. Foundation finanicial resources are limited. Therefore, the Foundation establishes programming priorities which focus its efforts to achieve maximum effect. Attention is centered on agriculture, education, health, leadership and youth. All of the Foundation's work also in some fashion reflects Mr. Kellogg's belief that the advancement of learning provides "the greatest opportunity for really improving one generation over another." In making grants, emphasis is placed on individual and group initiative.
