Our philanthropic philosophy is to support gifted and talented students through meaningful educational opportunities that cultivate and identify talented youth in mathematics, science, engineering, technology, literature, education, the arts, and related disciplines. Grants are awarded to non-profits, not individuals.

Since its inception in 1960, the James A. Welch Foundation has distributed over two million dollars toward projects which have expanded educational opportunities for talented and gifted young students in Flint and Genesee County, Michigan.
