His daughter, Shirley Fredricks, established one of the nation’s first next generation boards in 1983. The Foundation’s mission is to award grants to nonprofit organizations serving children and families living in poverty in three Southern California neighborhoods. In addition, a small portion of their funding goes to nonprofits promoting youth and family philanthropy.
