Throughout time and across cultures, there is a long-held belief that a red string connects us to those we are destined to meet, protecting us from harm, guiding us to our purpose, and empowering us to be our best. It is this belief that is at the heart of Red String.
The Red String Foundation is a nonprofit public benefit corporation established under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We believe that every life deserves to be happy and meaningful, and that people can improve their own lives when provided with the necessary skills, knowledge, support, and access to resources. The Foundation is dedicated to making a positive difference in the communities that we invest in. We support and collaborate with our charity partners on significant initiatives that helps them achieve their objectives while aligning with our mission, core values, and objectives. Our charity partners work within their communities especially among the poor, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised to help children and youth, neighborhoods and communities, and seniors toward self-sufficiency and a higher quality of life. The Foundation has three major programs focusing on,
Children and Youth: We support early learning educational programs in both STEM and the Arts that teach and empower children to feel valued, capable and self-confident.
Communities: We support neighborhood and community-based programs and services that advances the educational and well-being of individuals and families to help them in their journey forward.
Seniors: We support senior living and care programs that promote the family's general welfare and enhance the quality of life of older adults that enable them to lead joyful, fulfilling, and meaningful lives.
The Foundation provides grants nationally to other qualified Tax Exempt 501(c)(3) Organizations with a priority to partner with charities that have proven experience in helping to improve livelihoods especially among the poor, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised, and whose mission, objectives, and values closely align with the Foundation's. Because Red String's objectives and focus areas cover a diversity of issues, it is different than the typical nonprofit charity that usually focuses on a singular issue. This diversity allows us and you to not only provide support to a wide range of issues facing our neighborhoods and communities, but also gives us a lot of flexibility to adapt to an ever changing world and focus our energy and grant dollars to the focus areas needing the most help.
