Focus Areas

Education: The Seabury Foundation considers the learning process to be the root of all healthy action—for individuals, families, neighborhoods, cities, and society as a whole. Accordingly, we partner with organizations that embrace the cultivation of understanding and the development of capability as critical aspects of their work. With education as the through line, we provide funding (and additional resources) to organizations operating in the following areas.

  • Academic Support – literacy, social & emotional learning, mentorship
  • Arts Enrichment – access to the creative process, including theatre, dance, music, film, and a variety of other arts, crafts, and cultural practices
  • Career Development – adult education, job training, apprenticeship
  • Community Connection – holistic community support—providing gathering space(s), responding to local needs and opportunities, and fostering connectedness between neighbors
  • Environmental Sustainability – protection of environmental health, sustainability practices, urban gardening
  • Wellness – food access, housing access, healthcare, mental health support, sports & movement
