The Elevation Foundation is a 501(c)3 public charity with a mission to transform distressed communities
by elevating entrepreneurship globally and educational opportunity locally.
The Elevation Foundation believes that development is a long-term commitment to attacking the societal inequalities and developing transforming leaders. The Foundation does this through innovative business and educational practices.
Our focus lies in two key areas:
A partnership of the Elevation Foundation, the University of Central Florida and Orange County Public Schools, this nationally innovative program aspires to address the systemic educational problem of “under matching” by working with low-income, high performing, high school students from Title 1 Orange County school and assisting the in preparing to be admitted to, in paying for, and competing with strength at the nation’s most elite public and private colleges and universities.
Working with partners in Haiti and Africa, we focus on economic development through social entrepreneurship and the growth of for-profit businesses. The Initiative trains and supports social entrepreneurs who build businesses that tackle social problems, create jobs and promote the rise of sustainable enterprise.
