Program areas


The Sidney E. Frank Foundation has four program areas: Arts, Education, Environment, and Medical and Life Sciences. Each of these focus areas are connected to each other through the shared goal of creating a more understanding, interconnected, and sustainable world.

The Foundation has developed as well two operating foundations: Tippet Rise Art Center, and the Adrian Brinkerhoff Poetry Foundation. These sister organizations offer programs in art, music, poetry, and nature to their local communities and the global digital audience.
