About Foundation of the World
We believe that education is the root from which everything stems and the branch from which everything grows. Therefore, we collaborate with educators, local high schools, colleges, and universities to develop programs to better serve our students and improve the quality of our public-school system. We believe that the greatness of an individual is not in how much wealth he/she acquires, but in his/her ability to affect those around him/her positively. Therefore, we develop partnerships between financial and educational institutions to provide financial literacy workshops that will provide individuals with the knowledge and skills to create wealth and effectively manage their money.  These are essential building blocks for the leaders of tomorrow. We were blessed with that foundation by our parents. Others aren’t so lucky.  -MORE-
