The foundation seeks to honor the memory of its benefactor, for whom it is named, by filling unmet needs and attempting to gain an immediate, transformational impact in four principal areas of interest: 1) Meeting the greatest needs of communities in Arkansas, Nevada and Oklahoma, primarily through improved facilities for their outstanding local nonprofit organizations; 2) Accelerating the fight against atherosclerosis and atherosclerotic heart disease through cutting-edge, translational research; 3) Improving the quality of life of America's growing elderly population through better training of physicians in geriatrics; and 4) Enhancing the quality and integrity of journalism, focusing particularly on better training of journalists who serve smaller communities and on business journalism. The foundation remains open to consideration of special opportunities in other areas that are consistent with its broad goals. In pursuing its goals, the foundation is committed to the support of nonprofit organizations and institutions that demonstrate sound financial management, efficient operation, program integrity and an entrepreneurial spirit.
