Future Foundation Atlanta

Keep It 100% in 2019



For 14 consecutive years, 100% of Future Foundation program participants have graduated from high school and attended post-secondary institutions. On March 20, 2019, Future Foundation will celebrate Atlanta’s past, present, and future investments in education for resilient youth at its Keep It 100% luncheon.

Led by a host committee of Atlanta’s business and civic leaders, this signature fundraising event invites the metro Atlanta community to become 100% Circle Investors with the goal of raising $300,000 for Future Foundation’s remarkable youth.

During the 2019 luncheon, the Jean Childs Young Individual Leadership in Education Award will be presented to Mike Donnelly, Regional President of Wells Fargo Bank, and the Ann Cramer Corporate Leadership in Education Award will be presented to Cox Enterprises. Future Foundation chose these distinguished awardees for their significant investments in education for metro Atlanta’s most vulnerable youth.

Join us this year for Future Foundation’s Keep It 100% Luncheon, and join our 100% Circle Investors major gift society with a gift of $1,000 or more. Invest now and help us make under supported youth a philanthropic priority for Atlanta!
