This foundation is a 501(c)3 organization. It was established to expand funds directly to young people to help them meet the costs inherent in obtaining excellence in vocational education and training and to aid handicapped persons in regaining necessary skills or adaptations leading to happy and useful life.

Through fundraising efforts such as the annual holiday candy sales the Foundation is able to provide necessary funds for noteworthy causes such as the Mercy Hospital Foundation--in particular, the child friendly pediatric trauma emergency care center at the new Mercy Hospital, Tiffin.

Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.
