Who We Are
The Transformation Foundation was formed with the mission to empower communities and individuals with transformational opportunities. Our vision is that all people have access to creating freedom and living a life they love. The Transformation Foundation is committed to funding programs & providing financial support for transformational education to communities and individuals in need.
We work with a number of partners and organizations in fulfilling our mission. We provide individual scholarships to young people and families in need. In addition, we raise money for community-wide transformational programs that are currently being delivered developing countries like Haiti and to Veterans in the United States.
We strongly believe that people who know the power and magic to transformation want to help make programs available to others in need. Please join us by making a financial contribution and getting involved today.
