The Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation’s work is directed by its purpose statement, “giving motivated people the tools they need to help themselves.” These tools are about more than grants and include guidance, connections, convening, sharing information, and other forms of assistance that the Foundation and its grantees can provide. It looks to support the highest‐quality organizations that show initiative, leadership, and innovation. PCLB has chosen Education Opportunity, specifically K-12 education, as its primary area of interest, as the Foundation believes all children deserve access to and the opportunities of a great public education, one that prepares them to succeed in college and in life.
In addition to this primary interest in Education Opportunity, the Foundation has made grants for targeted purposes in the Danbury area. Danbury area grants generally focus on Services for Older Adults. In support of this priority, the PCLB Foundation is pleased to be a founding partner for the Age Well CT website. This website promotes the coordination of services and education/advocacy that are critical to improving lives of older adults so they may age with dignity in their place of choice.
