In collaboration with nonprofit partners, Longleaf Fund grants aim to strengthen the character and achievement of at-risk children and youth while encouraging communities to reach higher and create opportunities for a brighter future.

- Projects that build community and increase daily physical activity by building or enhancing age-appropriate, accessible space for play, sports and recreational activities.
- Projects that promote learning, especially for at-risk youth, with a particular emphasis on creating or improving access to technology.
- Projects that enhance the quality of life for children, ages 0-18, with disabilities (physical and/or mental) by improving their educational or physical environment and developing the children’s physical capabilities.
