Future Foundation Atlanta

Keep It 100%



Future Foundation levels the playing field for economically disadvantaged youth in metro Atlanta through innovative education, health and life skills programs. As a result, 100% of our teen participants graduate high school and matriculate to post-secondary education – since 2007. The Keep It 100% Luncheon celebrates Atlanta’s past, present and future investments in education for resilient youth, our 100% Circle Investors major gift society, and our 100% graduation rate.

Future Foundation’s signature fundraising event for 2017, the Keep It 100% Luncheon will take place on March 29, 2017, at The Gathering Spot. 

Event chair Curley M. Dossman, Jr. will present the Ann Cramer Corporate Leadership in Education Award to UPS and the Jean Childs Young Individual Leadership in Education Award to Shan Cooper of WestRock. Our goal is to raise $350,000 and significant awareness for Future Foundation in the greater Atlanta area, and beyond.
