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.
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.
