The American Red Cross also received a total of $200,000 from the foundation in areas serviced by the  company, including Texas and Mississippi, which recently received aid from the organization.

The Children's Museum received $100,000 to be used to support an Early Learning Village,  which will include a nature center, an early care and learning center, a parent and teacher resource center, and a literacy center among other facilities.

The Lincoln Center in New York City was awarded $100,000 for its jazz programs and music education focusing on jazz music performance.
