The Francis Bernard And Eileen Schmelzer Francois Foundation

We will make micro-grants and micro-investments to and in non-profits.

We are in the process of establishing our guidelines and establishing our founding principals. We plan to continue the public sector work begun by Francis and Eileen, who have inspired a generation of community leaders, organizers and activists, working for the public interest.

“May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the rains fall soft upon your fields, And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand.”
