Youth Enrichment & Education

Youth Enrichment & Education

We aim to:

We strive to provide funding to non-profit organizations that enrich the lives of children, encouraging them to thrive and excel in their life. We support early learning, mentoring, art appreciation and other areas that the mainstream education system does not adequately address.

Why it’s important:

It is well documented that children that grow up with effective early learning and enrichment programs are much less likely to commit crimes, drop out of school and have drug and health problems later in life.
