Give a Hand - Plant a Seed - Each One Helps One 


The Aunts and Uncles Foundation

The Aunts & Uncles Foundation was founded as a non-profit organization in 2008 to foster cultural development and appreciation and promote goodwill toward the disadvantaged. The foundation partners with other not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organizations for its outreach initiatives.


Philosophy

We believe that those who are blessed with more should share with those less fortunate among us so that no one is without. This support can be in material form, but it should also reflect the desire to uplift one another's spirit whether it is with words of encouragement, sharing wisdom or giving someone your time to make them feel that they matter.

The "Aunts" and "Uncles" of the foundation endeavor to become a resource or guide for disadvantaged youth by helping them experience some of life's richness.

The Aunts and Uncles Foundation seeks to:

     - Foster cultural development among disadvantaged youth through 
       exposure to the arts and social recreational opportunities.

     - Promote goodwill toward sharing and helping the less fortunate by 
       serving as a liaison to connect those in need with available resources.
