We are a 501 c 3 non-profit organization focused on helping youth achieve greater education outcomes. Our focus is on supporting education initiatives that help youth improve their reading and math skills while building self confidence and strengthening their emotional and spiritual well being.
An important part of our work is focused on helping US born children impacted by deportation of one or both parents. Current activities are focused in Fairfax, Virginia. We are also providing scholarships to Dreamers (undocumented persons brought to the US at an early age). Our latest scholarship round just ended with 12 DACA youth participating. Three scholarships were awarded for first, second and third place narratives under the Elena Bathrick Scholarship competition.
By partnering with us through your tax deductible donations, you can help children improve their education outcomes. Our first goal is to help a child find ways to promote better education outcomes via tutoring, access to educational material, mentoring and planning for higher education. We also want to support higher education for Hispanic youth.
Our ultimate goal is to support a family's efforts to have their child enter technical or college degree programs.
An English and Spanish language website - Unidos Contigo - allows families to request support for their children. We follow up these requests with an assessment of the child's needs and a plan to help that child achieve improved education outcomes. Your tax deductible donation can make a difference in a child's life.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading the word about our work.
If you can use the Amazon Smile Shopping Platform (see http:smile.amazon.com) that would help. Just log into Amazon using smile.amazon and designate the Marie Maxey Foundation as your target charity.
As we move forward, the most important asset we have is the network of partners that are willing to help children address issues (physical, emotional and spiritual) that negatively impact education outcomes. Your support can mean all the difference to a Hispanic youth. Your help can contribute to the strengthening of communities and our country, one child at a time.
Thank you for your support!
Improving education helps prevent out migration. Social and economic development is the most effective way to stop the caravans!
