Grants may be awarded to organizations, programs, and projects that provide tangible benefits to diverse groups that serve the citizens of Malta, including non-profits, charitable organizations, community arts and theater groups, community historical sites, special events, education programs and sports and recreational activities.
Since 2011, the foundation said it has distributed more than $1 million.
