with the andrew j. young foundation
The Andrew Young Foundation is entirely driven by the vision of its founder and chairman, Andrew Young.
But that vision is nothing new.
From childhood, Andrew Young was taught, "Those to whom much is given, much will be required."
He knows he and his family have been blessed. He created a foundation to pass on those blessings at home and wherever the spirit leads.
Our job is to help him make it a reality. We need your support. Thank you for sharing Ambassador Young's vision and for your loyalty.
The Andrew Young Foundation works to improve life, health and well-being of humanity through programs and initiatives created to assist challenged communities.
Feed the hungry.
Clothe the naked.
Heal the sick.
House the homeless.
Liberate the oppressed.
And do it in our lifetime.
What others often fail to see,
Ambassador Andrew Young envisions in ways that often don't seem humanly possible. Yet, time after time, he has prevailed.
Each time he spoke, the bells rang.
Each time he appeared,
he brought the dignity,
the sincerity, the devotion,
and the dedication
of African Americans.
