The Malone Family Foundation primarily, but not solely, focuses on programs and projects that expand the horizons of and opportunities for children and young adults. Those programs and projects whose direct objectives are providing better education, promoting self-esteem and instilling in its beneficiaries a desire to improve oneself are of great interest to the Foundation. The Foundation concentrates on 501(c)(3), non-profit organizations that provide programs and projects designed to prevent or solve problems and create opportunities, rather than meet basic needs.
Preference will be given to creative programs that directly and positively impact the future of children and young adults in the area of education. The Foundation feels that a well-educated and motivated population promotes an economically strong community and, thereby, improves everyone's standard of living while simultaneously expanding opportunities for everyone.
