SUPPORT THE FOUNDATION
The Andrew J. Young Foundation works to improve life, health and well-being of humanity through programs and initiatives created to assist challenged communities.
"Solutions are difficult to achieve in one generation, but they need to be started now," says Andrew Young, the visionary former United Nations Ambassador and Civil Rights leader who began his career as a minister.
We believe our ambitious programs have the potential to no less than solve the basic needs of people living in poverty in the U.S., Africa, and around the globe.
The Andrew J. Young Foundation is a community based 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity envisioned as an extension of the ambitious, lifelong ministry of Ambassador Andrew Young. to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, house the homeless, and liberate the oppressed.
In addition to supporting various educational institutions
and Civil and Human Rights organizations, we are working
with partners to develop and advance innovative projects
involving food security and malnutrition, job creation, and
economic development -- at home and globally.
Your tax-exempt donations, small and large, are what enable us to transform
Ambassador Young's visions into reality.
To alleviate malnutrition nationwide, we are working in partnership to extract a rich, organic protein abundantly available in the tiny, aquatic plant Lemna -- commonly known as Duckweed.
