"Along with developing heads, we must also develop hearts. For it is the heart alone that determines whether the power derived from knowledge will be used for positive means or negative ends." - ISSE-USAScott Foundation provides programs and service FREE of cost to kids in the Arizona foster care system and at-risk youth.
Scott Foundation has big aspirations and a different path for Arizona foster kids and families. We imagine a journey that changes the face of humanity and inspires our children to be their absolute best today while making tomorrow's world a much better place for all. We imagine an education and societal system focused on the power of community rather than competition; and we imagine a world where children are taught we are not separate, but instead, we are all a part of something much bigger than ourselves - we are one.
By supporting Scott Foundation, you’re making these aspirations a reality for foster kids and at-risk youth across the state.
That’s one of the hallmarks of Scott Foundation: Fostering universal human value, we believe in making the world a more peaceful and loving place through the enrichment of inner wealth with programs that emotionally teach kids to make better choices through selfless service. What other organization could bring together - 4,950+ Kids to redirect over $600,000 In-Kind Donations back into the community.
----- A MESSAGE FROM SCOTT'S MOM -----
Why do we focus on serving kids in the foster care system?
Everyone has a story but my awakening began through the loss of my son, Scott. Being completely emptied from everything I thought I knew inside, I observed the world now happening for me, in slow motion. Why me and why was I left behind? This same question is asked by nearly 20,000 kids in the system.
As I watched the social noise, unkind words spoken and swirl of everyone rushing do things that felt unimportant; I began to search for my own purpose and what to put back into my life. What kind of person am I? What can I do to make this world better than I found it?
In the light of selfless service I found unspeakable power that came from within. My heart began to fill as I watched children light up inside when they too had permission to feel and focus on acts of kindness. It was like taking a magic pill that softened the edges of my own pain. Now how do we create more Superheroes’ to fix the overwhelming problems we have?
Much like many bereaved parents who start movements, change laws, spearhead crusades of tireless activism, I found myself in these young warriors motivated like no others, turning their pain into something positive. These shining souls are the most beautiful, compassionate, loving, healers I have ever had the honor of knowing. They are life-changers, game-changers, relentless survivors and thrivers. Young warriors who redefine the word brave.
Love is the most powerful force on earth. Get to know a foster child. You’ll be thankful you did!
Please give your tax dollars a voice and support foster kids who wish to become Superheroes’ to make our world better.www.TaxCredits4AZFosterKids.comWith gratitude, Colleen Walski
