WHY THE DASH?
THE DASH REFERS TO THE LITTLE HORIZONTAL LINE ON OUR GRAVESTONES; THE ONE BETWEEN THE DATE WE WERE BORN AND THE DATE WE PASS AWAY. THE DASH REPRESENTS EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN AND HOW WE CHOOSE TO LIVE IT.
Our vision is to create an army of youth philanthropists who will serve as community leaders throughout their lives.
Our mission is to educate and inspire today's high-school students to become tomorrows' philanthropic leaders through community engagement and hands-on grantmaking.
The Foundation operates through community based youth boards comprised of high-school aged youth who serve as stewards of the foundation's grantmaking process, annually awarding grant monies to nonprofit organizations serving at-risk youth.
