Scholarship Shoutout Saturday – Luke McCullough

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to play, learn and succeed. Everyone deserves a safe place to not just live but thrive. We believe providing that safety means speaking up as an ally.  How to achieve this is a...

But thanks to their ingenuity and unwavering commitment, three MAF grant recipients are finding creative ways to keep the communities they serve healthy,...

2020 Scholarship Celebration Event Update!

These are unprecedented times with lots of emotion. Joy (you graduated or completed the school year), uncertainty (what might school and the world look like in the Fall) and anger/fear/sorrow (current state of the world and our communities). We, at the Foundation, feel all of that and also hope! Because we believe in YOU, your conversations, your actions and your passion will make a vital impact on the world – now and in the future.
