To help young people of exceptional promise reach their full potential through education.
Our children are the future leaders, problem solvers and stewards of our community. Education is
the pathway to success for every community and society. Given the importance of education
in building strong individuals, families and communities, and the
primacy of literacy in enabling people to succeed, the Foundation seeks to
(1) increase access for young people, especially those who face greater challenges in life, to
attend and graduate from college through grants and endowments for scholarships to colleges and
(2) promote excellence in education with specific emphasis on expanding and enhancing the
availability of high-quality college preparation programs for disadvantaged children
and youth, and
teachers whose leadership and
dedication inspire a spirit of learning in students of all backgrounds and abilities.
