Every child deserves the opportunity to succeed. We fund scholarships from kindergarten through college impacting children in need. Through our program partners we fund after school programs, character building exercises, college admissions counseling and leadership training to challenged youth.
We believe that any child regardless of circumstance deserves to learn, achieve and thrive. And we bring together non-profit partners and volunteers to amplify the good that they can accomplish independently. Whether it is tuition assistance so a child can attend summer camp, a field trip grant, or a scholarship for a child in need to attend school, or "gap funding" to close the breach between a student's college scholarship and their actual tuition bill-- we are making a profound difference in the lives of children and young adults.
A case study: We brought together a national sportswear company and a urban elementary school to provide quality after-school programming. The company provided coaches that led the students through high-energy fitness and nutritional program that taught these youngsters the importance of exercise and healthy eating, while at the same time sprinkling in life lessons about working hard and giving back to your community. As kids would relate: find those people, and be those people who "have your back." At the end of the school year, the foundation sponsored a field trip that brought the students to the offices of the lead instructor where they were not only treated to a behind-the-scenes tour, but also to the office environment of working professionals who had freely given their time to them for months.
