The Foundation | History

Since its inception in 1981, the Foundation has developed partnerships that advance a wide and diverse range of worthwhile initiatives while promoting healthy lifestyles, children's fitness and overall community improvement.

The Foundation has grown significantly over the years, granting more than $60 million and enabling our annual grant making to increase from $30,000 in 1981 to over $6.5 million in 2015. Essential to carrying our mission are high-impact, long-term, sustainable partnerships. Select organizations have been with the Foundation from the beginning and have grown alongside us in serving more children and in achieving higher impact within their communities.
