Our Mission is to enhance academic success among low-income and under-represented minority students through school and educational partnerships by providing funding for unmet educational needs. The focus is on reaching and providing support to students often overlooked in funding initiatives—motivated students who show promise but are not necessarily recognized as the most accomplished students. By supporting the educational needs of such students, the Foundation increases the number of students in the educational pipeline and helps create a cadre of future professionals to help meet America’s workforce needs.
Our strongest initiatives are those that link students with resources. We link people across an array of educational, social, civic, cultural, and professional circles and bring them together to work and create programs that enhance education.
