Our story.

The Foundation’s story began in 1968 with entrepreneur Stewart Bainum. He wanted to give children living in poverty the opportunity to break the bonds of their circumstances through access to high-quality educational opportunities and services. See what we’re focused on now.
How Do We Help Children Succeed?

Let us count the ways.

As part researcher, part organizer, part educator and part investor, we put children at the center of everything we do. We’re committed to changing their futures.
