Brief history: The Public Welfare Foundation was founded in 1947. It was overseen by Charles E. Marsh till 1953, then by his wife till 1974
Brief notes on broad donor philosophy and major focus areas: The three historical main areas were criminal justice reform, youth justice, and worker rights. In 2011 it added a special initiative for civil legal aid. All initiatives seem restricted to the United States
Notes on grant decision logistics: Grant applications have to be submitted through a process described at http://www.publicwelfare.org/grants-process/apply-for-a-grant/ and http://www.publicwelfare.org/grants-process/ and have to fit within the program guidelines described at http://www.publicwelfare.org/grants-process/program-guidelines/
Notes on grant publication logistics: Grants are published on the grants page http://www.publicwelfare.org/grants-process/our-grants/ where they can be filtered by category and by fiscal year. Pages on individual grants are not published
Miscellaneous notes: The foundation was included because it has been mentioned by the Open Philanthropy Project as one of the important funders of criminal justice reform in the United States, see for instance https://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/criminal-justice-reform/criminal-justice-reform-strategy
