Strategic Partners

W.K. Kellogg Foundation

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) places the optimal development of children at the center of all we do and calls for healing the profound racial gaps and inequities that exist in our communities. We believe in supporting and building upon the mindsets, methods and modes of change that hold promise to advance children’s best interests generally, and those of vulnerable children in particular. Concentrating our resources on early childhood (prenatal to age 8), within the context of families and communities, offers the best opportunity to dramatically reduce the vulnerability caused by poverty and racial inequity over time.

Juanita Sims Doty Foundation

Tjuanita-sims-dotyhe Juanita Sims Doty Foundation, Inc. is exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The Foundation is dedicated to improving individual lives through community engagement and outreach.

We will promote coalition building and support collaboration and partnerships among communities, faith-based organizations and individuals to implement service projects in the areas of education, children’s and women’s health and the overall health and wellness of the family. This Foundation will provide support and funding to community and faith based organizations to fulfill our overall mission and purpose.
