Foundation Hits Major Milestone
$1 Million Raised in Josh's Honor
9/14/2021 - Shortly after we lost Josh in 2013 a few founding members gathered at a bar and wrote the foundation charter on a napkin. Their goal was to raise just $1,000 a year - even if they had to donate themselves - towards stem efforts in their dear friend's name. Fast forward 8 years later...due to the generosity, energy and dedication from people like YOU, we just reached an amazing milestone, ONE MILLION DOLLARS RAISED. We're speechless, and humbled by your commitment to Josh's legacy and we look forward to many milestones yet to come.
Covid-19 Relief Efforts
Crossroads Charter Schools
Early in the Pandemic we were presented with an opportunity to make an immediate impact at Crossroads Charter Schools In Kansas City. Through a donation we were able to facilitate the purchase of 150 tablets which were distributed to families without access to digital resources, enabling the opportunity for all students, regardless of income or economic-status, to thrive in a remote-learning environment due to the pandemic.
In early March of 2020 we held #trivia4josh without knowing just days later the world would shut down. While we’re obviously very disappointed to not be celebrating this with you in 2021, we’re so grateful for the support you’ve continued to show & what we’ve been able to do with funds raised to help those affected in this pandemic due to lack of access to technology for education. Planning for 2022's Trivia 4 Josh is already underway and we can't wait to share a toast with all of you! Click here for details.
