Our Passions

We partner with select causes and organizations that are closely aligned with our passions in the following areas:

  1. Nurturing Successful Children

    Children are more likely to be successful when their minds, bodies and souls are well nourished and their environments are safe. We aim to equip children with the necessary skills and abilities to flourish. Our foundation supports select causes and organizations committed to the spiritual, educational and personal development of our urban youth.

  2. Fostering Stronger Families

    A stable family provides a solid foundation from which each individual member can gain the confidence and support to pursue his or her own potential. Through select partners, our foundation strives to help families, especially those at greater risk of failure due to their socio-economic situation, to improve their circumstances and meet their full potential.

  3. Cultivating Healthier Communities
