"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little. "
Franklin D. Roosevelt


We envision a world where our children's most formative years are not hampered by issues beyond their control.  We believe that brilliant, innovative, and humane minds must be nurtured, and we support programming that assists those in need in overcoming barriers to success, opportunity, health and happiness.
