Community Needs

The Foundation supports programs that provide for basic human needs and promote the development of life skills in an effort to improve the quality of life for Alabama’s individuals and families. This quality of life can also be improved with the stimulation of business growth and entrepreneurship within our communities. Such work hinges on the availability and development of leaders who have the vision and capacity to address these challenges.

Alabama has an estimated 400,000 total veterans, representing 8 percent of the state’s population. We believe that, given the sacrifices made by our military personnel, they deserve access to services and opportunities that enable them to lead productive and fulfilling lives.

Our priorities:

• Programs that offer an effective approach to job training, readiness and placement as well as life skills training
• Programs that encourage and support the growth of entrepreneurship in Alabama
• Community revitalization initiatives
• Projects that meet the needs of Alabama’s veterans
• Leadership programs that demonstrate success in developing leaders for the nonprofit, government and business sectors
