Core Values

Historical Perspective

The Eckstein Charitable Trust’s grant-making interests are derived from the areas that Ray & Kay Eckstein concentrated their personal giving for the majority of their married life.  The couple enjoyed giving to organizations who focused on faith, family, education, and human needs in the communities in which they resided.  It is from these areas that the Trust derived five core values.      

 

Core Values

Listed below are the five core areas which guide the grantmaking of the Trust:

  • Faith:  The Trust desires to support Catholic/faith-based programs and services.
  • Human Needs:  The Trust desires to help those that are not able to help themselves with an emphasis on programs/services that provide basic human needs (food, shelter, education, and healthcare.)
  • Family:  The Trust values families and desires to support service organizations offering programming focused on strengthening, building, promoting, and advancing families.
  • Education:  The Trust is interested in supporting collaborative/coordinated programs and services benefiting disadvantage students or students in disadvantaged locales.
  • Vibrant Communities:  The Trust supports community initiatives taking place in locations where the Trustees &/or their families have a personal interest.
