Areas of Interest

The Judith and Jean Pape Adams Charitable Foundation was created in 2004 as a private foundation in order to support two areas: organizations and agencies that work to enrich the lives of those in the Tulsa, Oklahoma region and national organizations that conduct Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research aimed at finding a cure for the disease. Foundation policy mandates that one-third of the Foundation’s annual grants be given in support of ALS research.

With regard to the Foundation’s Tulsa grants, priority will be given to the following areas of interest: (1) arts & humanities; (2) education; and (3) social service organizations that promote self-sufficiency.
